Level of EvidenceN/A
Oral midazolam has been the premedication of choice for healthy pediatric patients undergoing elective surgical procedures. However, undesirable adverse effects include respiratory depression, paradoxical reactions, and postoperative behavioral changes. Intranasal dexmedetomidine produces satisfactory preoperative sedation levels, facilitates parental separation, and has better analgesic properties than oral midazolam without respiratory depression.
