Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about acquiring HIV from breathing in a flatus (fart). From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the transmission equation. The transmission equation requires bodily fluid, a high risk activity, and direct access to the bloodstream (1). In this scenario there was no bodily fluid or high risk activity rendering the transmission equation incomplete (1).

*Recommendation:* No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions.

Regards,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Danielle
