Avatar f tn I had all my first blood work done at 17 weeks including all the genetic test today at 20 weeks I went back they said everything was normal except my pap smear which I have to repeat in 12 months.

Avatar m tn I have seen a dentist to use same syringe for 2nd use xylocaine ijection (local anasthesia) from multi dose via for the same patient though new syringe is used for separate patient for the same vial. Can it make the rest of the vial nfected by HIV. Though no trace of blood seen in the xylocaine solution . what is the posiblity of getting hiv infection solution. how long HIV survive in the xylocaine even if some infected blood is entered in it.
Avatar m tn The nurse drawing the blood used a vacuette quickshield with a needle attached to it and then filled 4 vials of blood. My problem is when she got to the last vial it appeared that blood was in the vial all ready from a previous patient. I know vials are not reused but if there was a human error and she drew my blood into a vial with someone else's blood would there be a risk there. If there is no risk can you please explain.
Avatar m tn So they dont use the whole Blood in the vial to perform a single test? They draw a portion and add the reactors, the accuracy is the same, is that correct?
Avatar m tn It's not the holder, i'm worried about, it's the vial being re-used. Would obvious blood in the vial stain the vial if it wasnt sterilized?
Avatar f tn The vials came in a multi-dose pack of four. I ended up using the green (or 20,000 units/ 1 mL) and the ten which was the same size vial but it came in a red box (10,000 units) which I think was red. I strongly encourage you to call your doctor's office and make arrangements for a short training session. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. I was freaked when I received from first dose of Epo and the needles. I figured it out by the product insert and a guy on youtube.
Avatar m tn Hi. I went for my Rabies shot which has a vial that contains the inactivated virus powder and an ampoule that has water. The water from the ampoule is filled in the syringe and injected into the vial first through a rubber part at the top and then the solution is mixed which is again filled in the syringe through the rubber part at the top and injected into the muscle. Anyway, after the nurse injected the water into the vial, she placed her index finger on the rubber part while shaking it.
1932338 tn?1349220398 She had a slow flow for the first vial, but then pulled the needle back a little and the blood flowed better for the next 2 vials (3 total were drawn). Then, she put the 1st vial back in the hub and said, "I want to add more now that the blood is flowing better ). That was after the 3rd Lavender tube was drawn=possible contamination of 1st vial ??? She left the tournaquet on for all 3 vials, plus putting the 1st vial back on.
Avatar m tn If during a blood draw, a persons blood was drawn into a partially used blood vial containing infected blood, is it possible that the other persons blood in the vial can flow out through the needle and into the vein?
Avatar n tn Step 6 Insert the tip of the syringe into the vial and depress the plunger to push air into the vial. Immediately turn the vial upside down with the syringe still inside the vial. The tip should be below the medicine level and the liquid should flow into the syringe to the correct dosage line. Step 7 Pull the syringe from the vial; carefully expel any extra liquid inside the needle, if necessary. Step 8 Wipe the injection area with alcohol to remove any bacteria or other contaminants.

Avatar n tn When she reached over, she spilled some of the developing solution out of the vial. She went ahead and put the swab into the vial. Before the saliva began to travel up the device (before it began to turn from white to pink) the nurse took out a new developer vial, removed the swab completely from the vial it was in, and put it in the new vial. After this, the device seemed to operate normally. The pink traveled up the device. The line appeared on the control line.
Avatar m tn I have taken a half filled multishot-vial for ticks to give my dog ​​from someone who keeps more than 100 dogs and when I wanted to give an injection to my dog ​​... the needle accidentally stuck my hand . my question is that, can this put me at risk of getting rabies and if the rabies virus can survive in the vial's solution?
Avatar f tn They did another spinal tap on Monday with an anesthesiologist doing the procedure. The first vial from the first tap had a red blood count of 93,000. The first vial from the second tap had a red count of 16,500 and the last vial from the second tap had a count of 6,500. I was wondering if a traumatic tap would result in blood staying in the spinal fluid that long. The doctor at the hospital wasn't much help. Would appreciate any help you could give me. Thank you.
Avatar m tn My thought is of novocaine. If by chance hiv infected blood got into a vial of novocaine could it be passed to the next patient if a clean needle was used? Would novocaine kill the hiv on contact? Is the vial air tight keeping the hiv alive or does the liquid dilute it?

Avatar f tn The case that I believe you are referring to did not involve blood drawing but rather the re-use of medication vials on multiple patients in which the contents of the vial was contaminated with blood, then material in the vial was injected back into other persons. For the reasons you imply in your questions, there is virtually no risk even if someone were to re-use blood drawing needles since the direction of blood flow is outward (from the body) rather than inward.
Avatar f tn I had to stay on lupron a week longer than initially planned, too, since my estrogen was too high after 2 weeks (they suspected a hidden cyst somewhere), but after the extra week, the levels were back down and I got the green light to start the stims. Did you have a chance to ask your RE about it?
Avatar m tn I never shared a needle, alway bought fresh needles but may have shared the vial. The oil is in a glass vial and the needle is stuck into the vial to draw out the amount of oil to shoot. If I had vial that was drawn on by by another person with HIV is it possible for the virus to survive in the vial until I drew the oil for my use?
Avatar f tn The trick I learned in trying to get most fluid out of the vial was to insert the needle at a 45 degree angle or so, and to tilt the vial as you withdraw -- gets the fluid into a corner instead of spread out over the entire surface of the vial cap. I usually tried not to re-insert the needle, just tap it to make the air bubbles rise, push them out, and draw in the rest of the fluid. Hope that helps, and good luck!
Avatar f tn s a multi dose vial it does need to be refrigerated after opening. Sooo, which is it?? The vial contains 4 weeks worth of medication for me.
250701 tn?1320974765 i found it a little tricky getting the solution out of the vial....i was not sure how low to keep the needle point so that it is still in the solution as i am withdrawing the procrit into the needle. if i mess up and i don't withdraw enough solution, can i just put the needle back in the vial and draw some more out? and when you put the air into the vial from the syringe, do you put are air into the solution as i was not sure if that caused bubble to form. thanks.
Avatar f tn Your question is NOT rational in any way. A healthcare worker could not accidentally put HIV blood into a vaccine vial. The person would have to perform a blood draw on an HIV+ person, presumably for a medical test. Then, the healthcare worker would have to go to the vaccine storage area, open a vaccine vial, and inject the HIV+ blood into the vial - DELIBERATELY.
Avatar n tn It went to one location over night and then to clinic in morning and then lab. The lady took a whole vial blood from me. I am afraid the blood being room temparature and then perhaps underrefrigirated could have killed white blood cells (which means there were really high) or made antibodies disappeared or DETEORATED to the point of nonrecognition. WBC is 12.3 but of is x10E3/ul (units). 3.8 - 10.8 range. (this seems a little high) Platelet count is 306 of x10E3/ uL (units ) 140 - 400 range.
Avatar f tn New syringes have been used every time but my concern is that the vaccine has been injected from multiple vial ( same bottle has been used for all of us). What if the vaccine vial is contaminated with HIV or other viruses? I'm so worried about this and not able to sleep. 2 years ago my mother has been diagnosed with cervical cancer and I have photodermititis which is chronic since 2 years. I have this constant fear that it is because of HIV.
Avatar n tn You drew a vial of blood. You drew a vial more. And then more. And one more till you were done. And not a viron was stirring. Not even .25 of one. Congratuations on finishing up and what we all hope will be a grande SVR.
