Dexmedetomidine is a short-acting, highly selective and potent alpha2-adrenergic agonist, working through activation of central nervous system alpha2 receptors, with several desirable pharmacologic properties, including sedation, anxiolysis, hypnosis, analgesia, amnesia, antisialagogue effects, and a unique respiratory-sparing effect (2-4).
Kamibyashi et al has quoted that dexmedetomidine [16] has additional antisialagogue effect making intubation easier and intubation time shorter.
