Client 3, with a CD4+ T-cell countof less than 200 cells/mm (200 cells/(L) and is HIV positive, is having AIDS-defining illness. A healthy client usually has at least 800 to 1000 CD4+ T-cells/mm of blood. The CD4+ T-cells are reduced in the client with HIVdisease. Client 1, with a CD4+ T-cell count of 750 cells/mm and HIV positive,does not have AIDS. Client 2, with a CD4+ T-cell count of 550 cells/mm andHIV positive, does not have AIDS. Client 4, having a CD4+ T-cell count of 450cells/mm and HIV positive does not have AIDS.Test-Taking Tip:Chart/exhibit items present a situation and ask a question.
