Bloodborne pathogens can be present in the following fluids and contact with them can pose a risk of transmission:

  • Cerebrospinal Fluid: The fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord.

  • Amniotic Fluid: The protective fluid surrounding a developing fetus during pregnancy.

  • Saliva: Fluid produced by salivary glands in the mouth.

  • Semen: The fluid containing sperm that is ejaculated during sexual activity.

  • Vaginal Secretions: Fluid produced by the vagina, which can vary in consistency during the menstrual cycle.

  • Synovial Fluid: The lubricating fluid found in joints.

  • Breast Milk: The milk produced by mammary glands in the breast for breastfeeding.

When these bodily fluids are contaminated with blood, they become potential carriers of bloodborne pathogens. It's crucial to exercise caution and follow proper infection control measures, especially in healthcare settings or situations where there is potential for exposure to blood or these fluids.
