Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) seropositivity was prospectively evaluated for trauma patients admitted to Memorial Medical Center between September 1989 and August 1990.
Epidemiologic data, HIV risk factors, and opportunity for body fluid exposure were compiled for 520 admitted trauma patients 15 years of age or older who met inclusion criteria.
Serum samples were obtained from initial laboratory tests.
Patient identifiers were removed, and matching blinded numbers were placed on patient serum and data forms.
Centers for Disease Control laboratories tested for HIV with the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method.
The Epi-Info (Version 5.01, 1990) software package was used for statistical analysis of epidemiologic data.
