  1. Risk of human immunodeficiency virus in surgeons, anesthesiologists, and medical students.

    Article - En anglais

    We postulated that three factors determine the occupational risk of infection from the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) for surgeons, anesthesiologists, and medical students:

    • first, the risk of needlestick exposure per year (range for surgeons 3.8-6.2, weighted average 4.2; range for anesthesiologists 0.86-2.5, weighted average 1.3; range for third-year medical students 0-5, best estimate 5);

    • second, the risk of seroconversion from a needlestick exposure (0.42%-0.50%);

    • and third, prevalence of HIV in the population served (0.32%-23.6%, depending on geographic location).
