Percutaneous Injuries

Superficial wound or solid needle

  • If HIV+ source asymptomatic or if viral load <15000 RNA/mL give basic regimen
  • If HIV+ with AIDS, acute seroconversion or high viral load give expanded regimen
  • If HIV status unknown then no PEP (consider PEP if possible HIV risk from source)

Deep wound or hollow needle

  • If HIV+ source asymptomatic or if viral load <15000 RNA/mL give expanded regimen
  • If HIV+ with AIDS, acute seroconversion or high viral load give expanded regimen
  • If HIV status unknown then no PEP (consider PEP if possible HIV risk from source)

Mucous Membrane Exposure

Small volume (few drops)

  • If HIV+ source asymptomatic or if viral load <15000 RNA/mL consider basic regimen
  • If HIV+ with AIDS, acute seroconversion or high viral load give basic regimen
  • If HIV status unknown then no PEP (consider PEP if possible HIV risk from source)

Large volume (splash)

  • If HIV+ source asymptomatic or if viral load <15000 RNA/mL give basic regimen
  • If HIV+ with AIDS, acute seroconversion or high viral load give expanded regimen
  • If HIV status unknown then no PEP (consider PEP if possible HIV risk from source)
