Mode Of Transmission Of HIV?
Assalamu alaikum … I want to ask: Can we get HIV from an unsterile dental implant but before we use it, we have washed the tool using water and wiped it well, and I asked my friend that the device was last used 2 days ago, Can it still infect HIV ?? Because I read a tool that does not have a container for blood will not transmit HIV, that’s what? Please answer my curiosity ..
Hello Rizdha, thank you for the question.
HIV is a virus that can attack the immune system of a person's body. People who are infected with the HIV virus will have a decreased immune system so they are susceptible to disease. HIV can be transmitted from one person to another through bodily fluids, such as blood, sperm, or vaginal fluids. Usually transmitted through sexual contact, syringes, blood transfusions, or from mother to child she is carrying. Complete HIV transmission can be read here. HIV is not transmitted through saliva, sweat, touch, or mosquito bites. So if the sonde that is used still contains blood or fluid from the body of an HIV-infected patient and is used to enter the bloodstream of other patients, the risk of transmission is high, but if there is no blood or fluid from the body of the patient with HIV, the risk of transmission is very low . However, when in doubt, it should be checked by a doctor, the doctor will conduct a question and answer and physical examination, and may recommend an initial examination or screening for patients with suspected HIV infection.
Thus, hopefully useful.
