What is asepsis? What is the difference between aseptic and antiseptic?

Aseptic is a system of measures aimed at preventing the entry of microorganisms on the wound surface both from the outside and from the inside. For this, with various injuries, so-called aseptic dressings are applied to the wound surface. To do this, use sterile wipes or wipes moistened with some kind of disinfectant solution. In various surgical procedures (operations, dressings, examinations of internal cavities using probes and endoscopes), all instruments and dressings are sterilized. In addition, there is a special regime in the operating units that ensures sterility of the air environment, overalls for surgeons and operating nurses, as well as surgical instruments and underwear that cover the patient.
