AbstractKEY MESSAGES 1. Intranasal dexmedetomidine at 3 μg/kg can be used as primary sedative for young children during non-painful procedures. The rate of successful sedation is similar to that achieved by oral chloral hydrate at 50 mg/kg. 2. Intranasal dexmedetomidine is associated with better acceptance by young children compared with oral chloral hydrate. 3. Adverse effects of vomiting and gastrointestinal problems associated with chloral hydrate sedation may be avoided with the use of intranasal dexmedetomidine. 4. The time to resume normal activities after chloral hydrate and dexmedetomidine sedation is similar.
