Transcript of "Hiv definitions-cvberger"

  1. 1. HIV Human Immunodeficiency Virus AIDS Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome
  2. 2. Cells & chemicals protect the body against disease. Ex: White blood cells T-Cells
  3. 3. Antibodies (ATB) -Substance formed response to a disease or vaccine. -made by immune system -usually protects against disease Ex.- chicken pox hepatitis B Antigens - Made by body in response to exposure of disease or foreign body stimulating the immune system to start working. - Generally indicates active disease
  4. 4.  After exposure- flu like symptoms develop ↓  HIV antibodies develop 6-12 weeks later – window period ↓  May not have any symptoms for 5-10 years- incubation period ↓  Develops AIDS
  5. 5. Window period- 6-12 weeks develop ATB  Incubation period- 5- 10 years until you show symptoms
  6. 6. HIV attacks body defenses ↓ Damages cells of immune system ↓ Immune system can’t function ↓ Virus multiplies- 1 week after exposures flu s/sx (last about 1 wk.) then go away ↓
  7. 7. 6-12 weeks- no symptoms no symptoms window period ↓ 5-10 years –incubation period-AIDS destroying immune system ↓ Symptoms occur
  8. 8.  Fever  Fatigue  Diarrhea  Skin rashes  Night sweats  Loss of appetite  Swollen lymph nodes  Significant wgt loss  Dry cough, shortness of breath (SOB)  Memory loss
  9. 9.  Furry white spots in mouth
  10. 10.  Red purple spots on skin-skin, mouth, lung  Type of cancer common in AIDs pt.
  11. 11.  Low resistance in infection- get infections we normally fight off  Infection takes over body b/c the immune system can’t stop it & it grows out of control  Ex.-
  12. 12.  Other examples: thrush, yeast infection
  13. 13. -Pneumonia caused by germ that lives in lungs - Leading cause of death in AIDS pt.
  14. 14.  Positive illness ( kaposi sarcoma, pneumocystis carni) + + HIV test + ↓ White Blood cell count/T-cells
  15. 15.  Lives outside body a few hours  Dead once fluid is dried  Hepatitis lives outside the body for 8 hours (even in dried secretions)  To infect a person virus must get inside the body
