What is TB?
Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease primarily affecting the lungs. Although the number of infections in the United States declined since 1993, it remains a concern. Many strains of tuberculosis are resistant to drugs used in treatment. People with active tuberculosis infections need to take several types of medication for months to eradicate the disease and prevent further development of antibiotic resistance.
The bacteria that cause tuberculosis spreads in microscopic droplets released into the air via coughing and sneezing. Transmission can happen when a patient in the untreated, active state of tuberculosis coughs or sneezes, laughs, speaks, spits or takes any action that involves breathing air out from the lungs. Most people with active TB who receive appropriate medical treatment for at least two weeks are no longer contagious.
What is a TB skin test?
The tuberculosis testing process has two segments:
- Part one. The tuberculin skin test (TST) is applied.
- Part two. The TST Employees must return for a follow-up visit within 48 to 72 hours of the first visit to complete the TB test.
