What does Chadsvasc stand for? CHADSVASC is a long acronym that refers to the various factors influencing your risk of stroke as an AFib patient. Specifically, your CHADSVASC score runs on a sliding scale from 0-10, and is made up of the following factors: Congestive Heart Failure (one point) High blood pressure (one point)
What does a CHADS2 score of 2 mean? Based on the CHA2DS2-VASc scoring, men who score at least one point and women who score at least 2 points should be started on oral anticoagulants to reduce risk of stroke. Medscape Medical Reference.
What Chadsvasc score is high risk? As for level of risk, a CHADS2 score of 0 is considered low risk; a 1 or 2, moderate risk; and higher than 2 was indicative of high risk.
How do you interpret Chadsvasc score? In both scoring systems, a score of 0 is “low” risk of stroke, 1 is “moderate”, and any score above 1 is a “high” risk. The CHADS2-VASc system, with having three more potential variables, inevitably classifies more patients into a high-risk group.
