  Outcome Measures
  Show All Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Percent of Subjects Requiring Rescue Midazolam for Sedation   [ Time Frame: During the study drug administration (ie., loading dose 10 or 20 minutes and maintenance infusion minimum of 6 hours up to 24 hours) and during the post drug administration (up to 24 hours). ]

2.  Secondary:   Incidence of Rescue Medication (Fentanyl or Morphine) Use for Analgesia During DEX Infusion   [ Time Frame: During the study drug administration (ie., loading dose 10 or 20 minutes and maintenance infusion minimum of 6 hours up to 24 hours) and during the post drug administration (up to 24 hours). ]

3.  Secondary:   Amount of Rescue Medication (Midazolam) for Sedation During Dexmedetomidine Infusion   [ Time Frame: During the study drug administration (ie., loading dose 10 or 20 minutes and maintenance infusion minimum of 6 hours up to 24 hours) and during the post drug administration (up to 24 hours). ]

4.  Secondary:   Amount of Rescue Medication for Analgesia During DEX Infusion   [ Time Frame: During the study drug administration (ie., loading dose 10 or 20 minutes and maintenance infusion minimum of 6 hours up to 24 hours) and during the post drug administration (up to 24 hours). ]

5.  Secondary:   Time Spent With a Total N-PASS Score >3 During DEX Infusion   [ Time Frame: Predose, loading dose (LD) 5 & 10mins/if LD is 20mins (5, 10, 15 & 20mins); maintenance infusion: 0 min, every 15mins (1st hr); every 30mins (2hrs), then hourly; within 5mins of DEX discontinuation; 5mins pre and post rescue medication ]

6.  Secondary:   Time to Successful Extubation   [ Time Frame: From the start of study drug infusion to the study completion/withdrawal (Approximately 48 hours) ]
