Bloodborne

Pathogens

bloodborne pathogens
Bloodborne Pathogens
  • microorganisms present in human blood that cause disease in humans
bloodborne pathogens1
Bloodborne Pathogens
  • Major Pathogens are:
    • human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
    • hepatitis virus
hepatitis infection facts
Hepatitis Infection facts
  • Only 50% of people infected each year will become acutely ill
  • the other 50% show no symptoms & do not know they are infected
infection facts
Infection facts
  • 90-94% of people have immune systems that defeat the virus
  • Those who cannot beat the virus become chronic carriers
transmission of hbv
Transmission of HBV
  • most common mode of HBV of transmission is percutaneous (through the skin) or via exposure to mucous membrane

Human

Immunodeficiency

Virus

(HIV)

what is it
What is it?
  • a virus which disrupts and cripples the immune system and leaves the body vulnerable to infections
comparing hiv to hbv
Comparing HIV to HBV

    • HBV can remain infectious outside the body for a week or longer
    • HIV is very fragile outside of the body
    • risk of acquiring HBV is greater than that of HIV
