Experimental: Ascending dose study
Ascending doses of dexmedetomidine (as per protocol)
Dexmedetomidine bolus 1 ug/kg over 10 minutes, followed by ascending infusion as follows: Dexmedetomidine [in ug/kg/hr], each for 15 minutes: 0.7, 1.0, 1.3, 1.6, 1.9, 2.2, 2.5.
Other Name: Precedex
- Percent Change in Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP) [ Time Frame: 10, 25, 40, 55, 70, 85, 100, 115 minutes after dexmedetomidine bolus administration ]Looking at hemodynamic response to dexmedetomidine. Mean arterial pressure primary outcome measure.
- Presence of Arrhythmias. [ Time Frame: 10, 25, 40, 55, 70, 85, 100, 115 minutes after dexmedetomidine bolus administration ]Presence of arrhythmias was studied using a 3 lead realtime EKG throughout study.
- Oxygen Saturation [ Time Frame: 10, 25, 40, 55, 70, 85, 100, 115 minutes after dexmedetomidine bolus administration ]Pulse oximetry was used to measure oxygen saturation.
- Heart Rate [ Time Frame: 10, 25, 40, 55, 70, 85, 100, 115 minutes after dexmedetomidine bolus administration ]Heart Rate recorded off EKG in beats per minute
