No Abby, aseptic surgery is surgery being done in a septic conditions; which are totally free of any microorganisms like bacteria etc.

Antiseptic - is when infections are reduced such as Joseph Lister's Carbolic Spray in 1867

Aseptic - is the movement towards clean working environments such as Ignas Semmelweiss 1846 , Florence Nightingale and the use of proper surgical uniforms , masks , sterilizing equipment etc..

Take it you're doing Transformation of Surgery on Tuesday - Same :)

And yeah, I think I do, check my recources, I have a couple of useful timelines on there and some other history revision I think. And the exam seems pretty easy, dont you think as theres not a lot to learn?! Do we just need to revise anaesthetics, antispetics, operating environment, infection, pain and blood loss? It seems really little compared to the Medicine and treatment exam on the 14th

there is no such thing as 'antiseptic' surgery but aspetic surgery is to do with how you look, like plastic surgery.

I actually did both in january and got an A for sources and full for medicine (how weird!) , the source paper was on war , unexpected in jan and my points were valid but not accepted on the mark scheme - i requested the paper back. But you have to resit one as you have to do by law 40% in the june of year 11 :( so its second time round for me !! :(
