* Jackson's scoring sheet was used to estimate the risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) death within the next 5 years. This sheet calculates the 5–year probability of developing CVD, which is defined as coronary heart disease as well as stroke, peripheral vascular disease, and heart failure. (Jackson R. Updated New Zealand cardiovascular disease risk–benefit prediction guide. BMJ 2000;320:709–10.)
