LEG 5 A:  LEG 5 A Surgical Asepsis:  Surgical Asepsis All objects used in a sterile field must be sterile. Sterile items out of vision or below the waistline are unsterile. Sterile items become unsterile by prolonged exposure to air. Moisture draws microorganisms from unsterile surfaces to sterile objects by capillary action. Edges of a sterile field are considered unsterile.
