3) Primary and secondary care should agree to start antihypertensive medication on anyone being referred to vascular surgeons (except PAD and HF): this action does not depend upon either SBP or diastolic blood pressure (DBP). The only reasons to measure SBP (in primary care) are: to calculate absolute risk (to inform patient decision-making); to determine whether patients with PAD or HF are prescribed antihypertensive medication; to determine how much more medication can be introduced. These can only be determined by SBP measurements and blood tests in primary care or at home.

Fitness to survive is determined by seven historical variables – age, sex and five morbidities – and measurement of physical fitness. Other historical and test variables can be incorporated in the future as they are shown to discriminate general survival or postoperative survival. The effect of surgery on survival can be gauged by comparing predicted population survival, estimated through the eight fitness-to-survive variables, with observed postoperative survival. Preoperative risk estimation can be used:  to inform decision-making with the patient and other clinicians;  to identify groups and individuals in whom surgery is likely to inflict high morbidity and mortality; Chapter 2: Preoperative risk assessment of vascular surgery patients  to invest stratified interventions before, during and after surgery, based upon thresholds of estimated postoperative mortalities.

In large observational studies the rates of nonlethal strokes and non-lethal heart attacks have each been about half the mortality rate. For instance if the mortality rate is 1 in 1000 per month then the rate of non-lethal stroke will be 1 in 2000. Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) – and the other major morbidities – contribute to the postoperative mortality rate. The relationship between the rate of all-cause mortality and major non-lethal morbidity probably holds in the postoperative period: the total rate of ACS may be higher than the mortality rate, but the rate of nonlethal ACS is not.
