The R-hf the Risk Score Calculator will be beneficial for all physicians treating heart failure.
Presently, the cut-off value of R-hf risk score is derived by calculating the severity of heart failure with other variables. It is too early to comment on the expected impact of treatment on this score. More details regarding cut-off value and its implications for treatment will be published soon with the results after applying this score in a large cohort of heart failure patients.
