Montana State Dept. of Health and Environmental Sciences, Helena. Health Education Bureau.
This volume consists of updated information to be inserted into a Montana AIDS Project manual on providing services to persons with acquired immune deficiency syndrome/human immunodeficiency virus (AIDS/HIV), originally published in December 1985. The updates are mainly statistics and terminology, along with the addition of several new sections. The first section provides a definition of AIDS/HIV, its causes, symptomatic diseases, risk factors, prevention recommendations, diagnosis, and treatment. A section on personnel management deals with patient care assignments, accidental exposure to AIDS/HIV, and employees with AIDS/HIV. A section on dentists and dental care personnel advises the use of personal protection such as gloves and masks and careful sterilization and disinfection procedures. Other guidelines are given for: (1) preventing HIV and AIDS transmission during perinatal care and invasive procedures; (2) providing dialysis treatment to infected patients; (3) dealing with infected children in schools and day care centers; and (4) reporting requirements, confidentiality, and public relations. Appendices provide information from the Centers for Disease Control on the case definition of AIDS for national reporting, and prospective evaluation of exposed health-care workers. (JDD)
