Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dexmedetomidine clearance by continuous venovenous hemodialysis [ Time Frame: 10 hours from the start of the dexmedetomidine infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: March 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: dexmedetomidine Drug: Dexmedetomidine
Dexmedetomidine 0.7 microg/kg/h 12-hour intravenous infusion

Detailed Description:

Dexmedetomidine is a selective alpha-2-adrenergic agonist with sedative properties indicated for sedation of patients in the intensive care setting. ICU patients with acute kidney injury requiring renal replacement therapies frequently have changes in volume status causing alterations in drug pharmacokinetics. Although dexmedetomidine pharmacokinetics have been studied earlier on ICU patients, there is no information on its pharmacokinetics in critically ill patients needing continuous renal replacement therapy.
