To address the spread of pathogenic agents and minimize the risk of infection, it is essential to apply measures for proper antiseptic treatment of the surgical site prior to an invasive medical procedure to effectively reduce the incidence of surgical site infection and associated complications. Knowledge of the concepts and standards for the use of antiseptic and disinfectant agents helps health care providers to effectively prevent the spread of infectious agents and provides a scientific basis for their rational use. Research on the mechanisms of action of antiseptics has not only scientific but also practical importance for nurses and clinicians, which is related to more effective use of these drugs in professional activities and potential development of new promising compounds and their combinations
