April 2004 I gave my uncle mouth to mouth resuscitation in his end stage of Pulmonary Fibrosis-he did not revive. Last month I had a 16.3 RAF Rh/Rheumatoid Factor and have had incredible pain in hips, knees, spinal column-and lethargy. Could I have gotten Rheumatoid Arthritis from my attempt at CPR for my uncle without a mask?
No. RA is not an infectious or communicable disease.
