But with an appropriate antiviral therapy during and after pregnancy, the rate of possible infection dropped to nearly 5%. Unfortunaetly, If infection occurs in the fetus or neonate, it progress more quickly in adult. CAUSES 1. HIV infection is caused by RETROVIRUS that targets helper T-CELLS containing the CD4+ antigen(cells that regulate normal immune response) 2. HIV is transmitted into several ways: a. Through sexual intercourse b. Contact with infected blood c. Across the placenta to the fetus during pregnancy (in case of active dse. Med noncompliance, and placental inflammation) d. Through contact during the labor and delivery e. Through breastmilk 3. For women, *heterosexual contact and* injection drug use are the two major mmodes of contracting HIV, includes: a.

WHAT TEST TELLS YOU CDCP- recommends HIV positive combination antiretroviral therapy. The treatment attempts to reduce the mothers viral load and minimize the risk of transmitting the infection to the fetus.

RISK DELIVERY CS delivery provides the lowest risk of HIV transmission from mother to fetus- lowest of performed before the labor begins or membrane are ruptured. WHEN BREAST ISNT BEST Risk for breastfeeding on mothers health, including her nutritional and immune status and viral load, as well as as length of time the child nurses at each feeding and weather the mother breast-feeds exclusively. In addition, the duration of the breast feeding foe 24 months or more transmit the infection to their neonates. MEDICATION.

Zidopodine (AST) and Didanosine (Videx)- used to slow progression of opportunistic infection such as P. carini pneumonia- the most common -it is given orally during the pregnancy -given IV during the labor -syrup for neonate Co-tromoxazole- may cause increased bilirubin levels in the neonate if administered late pregnancy. WHAT TO DO. 1. Institute standard precaution where caring for the mother throughout the pregnancy, after delivery, and when caring for the neonates. 2. Teach the pregnant woman measures to minimize the risk of virus transmission 3. Provide emotional support and guidance for the woman whos HIV positive and considering pregnancy 4.

Encourage to keep prenatal check-up to evaluate status of pregnancy 7. Assist patient taking meds 8. Institute measures during labor and delivery to minimize the fetus risk of exposure to maternal or body fluids. Avoid the use of internal fetal monitors, scalp blood sampling forceps and vacuum extraction to prevent the creation of an open lesion to fetal scalp. 9. Advise the mother that breast feeding isnt recommended bec. Of the risk of transmitting the virus. 10. Withhold blood sampling and injection of the neonate until maternal blood has been removed with the first bath 11. Educate the mother about the mode of HIV transmission and safer sex practices.
