Principal aim of “intraoperative neuromonitoring” (IN) is to prevent the potential neurlogical deficits may caused by surgical process, which is very appropriate to the principal rule of medicine “primum non nocere”. In addition to reducing the neurological deficits, monitoring of the neurological structures, also provides very valuable knowledge about anatomy and physiology of central nervous system. IN become almost routine technique during the surgeries concerned to the central and/or peripheral neurological structures. The used monitoring technique varies according to the involving neurological structure, and the aim of the surgical intervention. Because of this, the stuff who runs the monitoring, must be well trained and experienced. As it similar in the other countries, there are serious controversies on the IN in our country by means of training, price, legal aspects. Before the problems hard to be solve, all the sides of the neuromonitoring must be together to regulate the all aspects of the issue.
