I've read manly document related to lifetime of HIV in open air. Someone says it just live for few second, another one says for couples minutes. Is there any study on this?

For one, HIV is not alive. It's either active or inactive. HIV cannot say infectious outside it's host.

When you say host, you mean the human body? Or the bodily fluid? Since in the environment, lets say a blood of an HIV+ person is spilled on the ground, HIV will technically by still in its host coz its in the blood. Right?

I agrre with Teak.
Please listen to him.
HIV is a virus and it's either active or inactive.
HIV cannot stay infectious outside it's host.
How long does HIV remain active will the depend on  its surounding environment.
But it never took mor then a couple minutes.
People infected from a syringe that has fresh blood in it. If the blood in the syringe has already clothed that the virus itself will be inactive and not infectious anymore.

GOD Bless!

Talking apples and oranges now chapeau? If you don't know the risks of exposure IV drug users, health care workers and cops have, then you have no business giving anyone advise on this forum or any other forum.
