Question Infective Endocarditis Criteria

In the KLN notes on infective endocarditis, there's a LOT of criteria (major and minor) for surgery, and then under prevention also there are many points, a lot of which i'm sure i will not remember tomorrow if i attempted to learn them today.

On the videos, Conrad Fischer simplified it a lot, but he also didnt mention a lot of these criteria, does that mean the other criteria he didnt mention can be ignored? Looking for a 250+ score here, not just a pass.
