Estoy infectado? / Accidente laboral
« Last post by Milo on Today at 03:48:14 pm »
Quiero explicar mi situación de riesgo. Soy estudiante de de microbiología, un día en mi práctica hospitalaria (aproximadamente 5 meses) me puncé con la aguja con la que le había sacado sangre a una paciente, la herida fue muy superficial, sangró muy poco y la limpié con un algodón y alcohol. Después de eso revisé el diagnóstico clínico de la paciente y solo decía que tenía hipotiroidismo, le comenté a algunos compañeros de laboratorio lo que me había pasado pero no le dieron mucha importancia, yo no sabía que existía la profilaxis post exposición ya que ni en la universidad me lo habían comentado, entonces me quedé tranquila después de eso. Pero ahora me he puesto a investigar más sobre el vih y me he dado cuenta que estas situaciones si deben ser tratadas para evitar el riesgo de infección en el personal de salud.
¿Quisiera saber si debería estar preocupada y considerar hacerme la prueba?
Yes I checked it out and it gives a beautiful red alert!!!

For situations like this I use a drug interaction checker. Drugs.com is a fairly good one, has a website and a downloadable app for your phone. It does not replace the advice of a medical professional as Ptrk3 has pointed out, it is best to consult one.

It did however say the interaction between Rilpivirine and Pantoprazole was a major one. Based on that I would not combine them until I had consulted a specialist.

Muchas Gracias Sr. Andy Velez.
Ahora vengo con un update.
A los 59 días (8 semanas, casi 9) acudí a realizarme una prueba, sin embargo esta no fue prueba ELISA, fue solamente una prueba rápida, donde se pone la gota de sangre en el aparatito, salió negativo.
Puedo ya quedarme con ese resultado de una prueba rápida? O debería realizarme una ELISA?
Yes I know what you mean but sometimes it is difficult to reach the doctors on the phone because if they are visiting somebody the cannot answer...the appointments, thanks to the progress with the disease, are every 4/5 months!
My advice to you would be to discuss the matter specifically with your doctor (sometimes even healthcare providers are not up to speed on all medication contraindications) and your pharmacist.

It's fine to query forum members, too, for any anecdotal information, but do keep the professionals in mind as you seek an answer to your question.
