In episode one we covered urine cultures, rubella, varicella, chlamydia, and gonorrhoea. Today we tackle HIV, Hepatitis B, and Syphilis - how to screen, how to proceed with a positive screen, and the implications for newborn care. We wrap up our infectious disease discussions with a review of what to order and how to manage the patient who presents in labour without any infectious disease screening whatsoever.
