HIV infection: problems with patients' anaesthetic management and healthcare workers' exposure.

Although infection with HIV has become a global epidemic, current research has provided a better understanding of the virus and its effect on the immune system. Combinations of new antiretroviral agents have been shown to be effective in prolonging the life of infected individuals, and chemoprophylactic regimens have been useful in preventing opportunistic infections. Risk factors associated with the occupational transmission of HIV have been identified and prevention strategies proposed.
