Abstract: 
Background: Monitoring the muscle relaxants by nerve stimulator is one of the important standards of modern anesthesia. In our institution we used this service as a monitor to compare the total dosage and recovery time of atracurium in two different routs of its administration: infusion versus bolus injections. Materials and Method: In this prospective double blind clinical trial two groups of ASA Class I patients (50 patients each group) undergoing general anesthesia were elected. In one group atracurium used with infusion technique and in the second group as intermittent blous injections. In this study nerve stimulator was monitoring of choice. In both groups the effective dosage were approached when only one responce to TOF were present. At the end of operation recovery time were estimated with the return of the fourth response of TOF.
Results: The result of this study showed that the total amount of atracurium used by infusion was less than the total amount of bolus injections. In contrast recovery time by infusion was shorter than recovery time by bolus technique.
Conclusion: The results of this study shows that by applying the nerve stimulator to monitor the depth of muscle relaxation we are able to use much lower doses of atracurium and faster recovery.
