Dexmedetomidine (Precedex®) is a selective alpha-2-receptor agonist that has been available for clinical use since 1999. Dexmedetomidine is currently registered in South Africa for post-operative sedation, after cardiac surgery, for 24 hours. The off label use of dexmedetomidine, for indications and duration of use other than registered, is widely published and accepted.
