Abstract

We report a novel use for dexmedetomidine as a supplemental intravenous or intranasal sedative for spinal anesthesia in infants. The children were 1, 2, and 9 months old having either inguinal hernia repair or circumcision. None of them experienced clinically relevant hemodynamic changes or apnea. Pain scores were zero throughout the postoperative period.
