Background: Most of the factors and prediction models of sudden cardiac death (SCD) have been developed without considering the Asia population. The purpose of this study is to construct a point-based prediction model for the general population in Asia. Methods and Results: Chin-Shan Community Cardiovascular Cohort (CCCC) is a community-based longitudinal cohort initiated between 1990 and 1991, enrolling participants aged ≥35 years and following them up until 2005. Participants with coronary artery disease (CAD) or a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of 35% were excluded from this study. The Framingham risk score function was used to derive a simple point-based prediction model. Based on bootstrapping, a novel model (CCCC-SCD-Score) was validated. A total of 2,105 participants were analyzed. The incidence rate of SCD was 0.406 per 1,000 person-years. The CCCC-SCD-Score score was calculated using age groups (maximal points=4), left ventricular hypertrophy, hypertension, left ventricular ejection fraction <40%, aortic flow rate >190 cm/s, and carotid plaque scores ≥5 (point=1 for each risk factor). The C-index of the CCCC-SCD-Score in predicting SCD risks was 0.888 (95% confidence interval: 0.807–0.969). Conclusions: For the general Asian population without a history of CAD or a LVEF <35% and who are aged >35 years, the novel model-based scoring system effectively identifies the risk for SCD using the clinical factors, electrocardiographic and echocardiographic data.
