HBsAg is one of the laboratory tests to detect whether a person has a hepatitis B virus infection in his body. Positive results indicate that the owner of a blood sample is strongly suspected of having an infection. This must be matched with clinical data from the doctor's examination and other supporting examinations. Because there are also other conditions, where positive HBsAg results are also found in some people who have recently had hepatitis B vaccination.
Every person who is pricked by a needle with a positive HBsAg patient has a risk of contracting the hepatitis B virus. The high or low risk depends on the status of the vaccination and the antibiotic titer it has. The flow of treatment for someone who is at risk of contracting the hepatitis B virus, namely:
1. Wash the wound with running water and antiseptic soap. If the mucosa is affected, then it can be rinsed with clean water. If the affected eye is, then use sterile physiological fluid (NaCl 0.9%) to flush it.
2. Next do an anti-HBs (antibody titer) check.
3. If your anti-HBs titer is more than 10, you only need to observe the HBsAg examination at 1, 3 and 6 months after exposure.
4. If the results of anti-HBs titers are less than 10, then immediately undergo immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is done by giving hepatitis B immunoglobulin G (HBIG). Thus, it is expected to increase the antibody titer to fight viruses instantly so that infection does not occur. To further undergo booster vaccination or continue vaccination that has not been completed or undergo hepatitis B vaccination according to standards for those who have not run vaccinations. Then, regular HBsAg checks (months 1, 3 and 6 after exposure) must be carried out.
5. If there are positive results from HBsAg examination, immediately consult with a specialist in internal medicine.
Thus hopefully useful.
