How much bleeding for it to be considered actively bleeding??

What is actively bleeding? Does blood already on the hand pose any risk for HIV transmission if it touches a cut?

Hi there,

Thank you for choosing the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of information.

Active bleeding involves injured blood vessels, and it can be classified as a less severe form of haemorrhage. Active bleeding would usually require medical attention such as stitching.

Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of active bleeding.

In health,
Moe, AIDS Vancouver Helpline Volunteer.
