Published in Circulation, the changes since the 2007 update include the following:
There's been a title change from "Evidence-Based" to "Effectiveness-Based."
The guidelines define "high risk" in women as being at a 10% or greater 10-year risk for all cardiovascular disease, not just coronary heart disease.
Clinicians should consider the importance of racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic factors and be sensitive to how those factors affect cardiovascular risk.
Women with existing cardiovascular disease should be screened for depression, since the condition may affect whether patients adhere to treatment regimens.
Women with systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis should be considered at risk for cardiovascular disease and be screened for other risk factors.
Similarly, women who have experienced pregnancy complications, such as preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, or preterm birth, should have those factors taken into account when their risks are evaluated later in their lives.
