α-2 agonists have a number of useful pharmacodynamic effects such as anxiolytic, sympatholytic, antinociceptive. They are very useful in the practice of anesthesia. On the other hand, their use is limited by side effects: severe hypotension and bradycardia, especially in their interaction with anesthetics. Nowadays in Ukraine are available – a long time known clonidine and deksmedetomedin — modern α-2 agonist. We learned the efficiency and safety of sedation by deksmedetomedin at a dose of 0.7 mcg / kg. Demonstrated positive effects of using deksmedetomedin in patients with acute abdominal surgical pathology.

α-2 agonists, deksmedetomedin, premedication, Deksdor.
