Abstract

To review existing cardiovascular risk models applicable to South Asian populations. A systematic review of the literature using a combination of search terms for "South Asian", "cardiovascular", "risk"/"score" and existing risk models for inclusion. South Asian was defined as those residing in or with ancestry belonging to the Indian subcontinent. The literature search including MEDLINE and EMBASE identified 7560 papers. After full-text review, 4 papers met the inclusion criteria. Only 1 reported formal measures of model performance. In that study, both a modified Framingham model and QRISK2 showed similar good discrimination with AUROCs of 0.73-0.77 with calibration also reasonable in men (0.71-0.93) but poor in women (0.43-0.52). Considering the number of South Asians and prevalence of cardiovascular disease, very few studies have reported performance of risk scores in South Asian populations. Furthermore, it was difficult to make comparisons, as many did not provide measures of discrimination, accuracy and calibration. There is a need for further research to evaluate risk models in South Asians, and ideally derive and validate cardiovascular risk models within South Asian populations.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 July 2016.
All research outputs
#3,195,420
of 8,019,832 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Public Health
#412
of 753 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#77,839
of 236,860 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Public Health
#29
of 43 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,019,832 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 59th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 753 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.9. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 236,860 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 43 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
