  1. HIV prevalence in a Midwestern emergency department.

    Article - En anglais

    To determine the prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) seropositivity of patients 15 years of age and older in our emergency department, HIV status was determined anonymously, and the seroprevalence rate was calculated.

    HIV seropositivity occurs in 1.32% of our ED population over the age of 15 years.

    The only factors that correlate with HIV seropositivity are male homosexual preference and male sex.
