Introduction: Surgical technologists are prone to chronic fatigue because of their occupational nature. The aim of this study was to determine the severity and dimensions of fatigue and its related factors in surgical technologists.
Methods and Materials: This was a cross-sectional descriptive study. The population of study consisted of 194 surgical technologists who were selected by stratified random sampling. Data collection was performed using the demographic and Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory Questionnaire. The data was analyzed using SPSS20 software and applying descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation test and t-test.
Results: The total fatigue score in surgical technologists was 59.6±7.8. survey of fatigue dimensions in surgical technologists showed that general fatigue (14.4±2.1) and decreased activity (9.8±2.1) had the highest and lowest mean, respectively. Among demographic characteristics, work experience and body mass index had a positive and significant correlation with total fatigue score.  
Discussion and Conclusions: According to the results of this study which indicates high level of fatigue in surgical technologists, it is recommended to pay more attention to the special features of operating room wards that may lead to fatigue in surgical technologists.
