•Microorganisms exist everywhere- in water, on the skin, within the intestinal tract, and on surfaces.
•Many are harmless, but some microorganisms can cause disease in body tissues and are referred to as pathogens.
•In an effort to control the spread of infectious diseases, the principle of asepsis is applied within the health care setting.
•This protects both the health care worker and the patient.
•Asepsis refers to the absence of disease-causing microorganisms.
•There are two categories of asepsis:
•Medical asepsis is also known as clean technique.  It is the process of limiting the growth and spread of pathogens. Examples are hand hygiene or changing a patient’s dirty linens.
•Surgical asepsis is also called sterile technique. These are practices that destroy all microorganisms and their spores. This is used in for things like invasive procedures and surgery.
