Can someone explain to me Medical Asepsis and Surgical Asepsis. Using examples and details of how both differ, and when would either be used.

Literally the first Google result is from Wikipedia and has a sentence that pretty much sums it up right in the preview. Reduction vs complete elimination of microorganisms.

Thanks, but I was looking for more of a in depth version. Like examples of how to remember them, and what to think of when you do them. Something that helps it stick. I have my books definitions on both, but still thanks for your help.

Take a look at Spaulding's classification. That may help.
