Active Comparator: Dexmedetomidine
Dexmedetomidine infusion, without a bolus dose, (or a comparable volume of placebo) will be initiated before the surgical incision at a rate of 0.1 mcg/kg/hr at the end of bypass, the dose will be increased to 0.2 mcg/kg/hr. Postoperatively patients will continue to receive the study medication at a rate of 0.4mcg/kg/hr. The study medication infusion will be continued for a total of 24 hours from the initial administration time intra-operatively.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
normal saline administration matching dexmedetomidine rate of infusion.
Normal saline administration matching dexmedetomidine rate of infusion
