[html]<strong>Summary:</strong>
The ACCP Stroke Risk Calculator is used to help decide whether or not to use anticoagulant. An approach to the decision of warfarin for oral anticoagulation for atrial fibrillation is suggested in <a href="http://www.aafp.org/afp/2005/0615/afp20050615p2348-f1.pdf" target="_blank">Am Fam Physician. 2005 Jun 15;71(12):2348-2350.</a>
1) Use the <a href="../../cardiovascular/chads2/" target="_blank">CHADS2 rule</a> as well as the <a href="../../cardiovascular/accp-stroke-risk-calculator/" target="_blank">ACCP rule</a> to determine the risk of stroke.
2) If both these measures predict moderate risk of stroke, proceed to calculate the <a href="../../cardiovascular/outpatient-bleeding-risk-index-obri/" target="_blank">Outpatient Bleeding Risk Index</a> and weigh the risks versus the benefits.[/html]
