Other Talks in the Series: Genetics of Cardiovascular Disease

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Michal Vrablik and I work at the 3rd Department of Internal Medicine at the 1st Medical Faculty of Charles University in Prague. The title of today's presentation is "Cardiovascular Risk Factors." And I'd like to guide you through the maze of cardiovascular risk factors and cardiovascular risk assessment.
During the presentation, we will try to find answers to multiple questions pertaining to cardiovascular risk factors and the risk assessment. We will define risk and we will try to find out ways how to assess cardiovascular risk accurately and procedurally at the clinical level. And we will also ask ourselves whether we can predict the future, arguably the cardiovascular future of our patients?
