Health care worker exposure to HIV-1 and HTLV-I-II in critically ill, resuscitated emergency department patients.
AIDS. Conference. Montreal PQ (CAN), 1989.
Exposure to HIV-1 is of profound concern to health care workers.
HTLV-I and HTLV-II, retroviruses with similar modes of transmission as HIV-1, also cause disease in human beings.
Emergency department resuscitations are high-risk situations for such exposure.
The purpose was to determine the seroprevalence of HIV-1 and HTLV I-II in patients undergoing ED resuscitations, the magnitude of health care worker exposure, and risk factors associated with infection.
Prospective identity-unlinked seroepidemiologic study.
ED of a 950-bed private inner-city teaching hospital.
