The Aspirin-Guide app from researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, helps clinicians decide which patients are candidates for the use of low-dose aspirin (75 to 100 mg/d) in the primary prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) by balancing the ASCVD benefits against the risk of harm due to gastrointestinal (GI) or other bleeding.

The app has several unique features, including:

*calculates a 10-year cardiovascular disease risk score (heart disease and stroke for the patient
*the ability to email a summary of the decision-making process to the patient

Aspirin-Guide incorporates information about the patient’s risk factors to calculate a 10-yr ASCVD risk score (the ACC/AHA ASCVD score) and a bleeding risk score, to help clinicians implement clinical guidelines on the use of aspirin in primary prevention.

Please note that research on aspirin in primary prevention among individuals younger than age 50 or 70 and older is limited.

A web-based version Aspirin-Guide is available at and is accessible from any computer or smartphone.

Managing statin muscle pain

61 yo male physician initiated first ever statin with chol 221, Hdl 53, coronary calcium 1 left circ., 31 LAD and no symptoms with regular exercise history. Developed severe tendonopathy/myopathy rather quickly at 11 months. Now suffering 6-7 weeks after d/c therapy from persistent symptoms. More details of course, but where would this physician find contemporary management considerations?

An Example of the Impressive Potential of Mobile Apps

This app offers helpful data points when deciding on whether to take aspirin regularly. I think it shows the potential of mobile apps to play important roles in helping us stay healthy.

Great tool and as a clinician it’s important to remember that no apps can override clinical judgement. Love the Info tab’s detail on the papers that have the evidence based medicine to back up the algorithm are easily accessible and a great resource when looking for details.
