Emergence agitation after general anesthesia in adults is rarely reported and neither its frequency nor effective treatment is shown. We reported 16 cases in which adult postoperative emergence agitation treated by dexmedetomidine (DEX). Cases who developed emergence agitation after general anesthesia and were treated by DEX from 2011 to 2014 were included in this report and their medical records were analyzed. Agitation was scored by Richmond Agitation-Sedation Scale (RASS) before and after administration of DEX. DEX was significantly improved RASS and emergence agitation with no marked complications. Two patients were needed additional treatment by haloperidol. We concluded that DEX has a prompt sedative effect on emergence agitation after general anesthesia in adults and could be beneficial for safety perioperative management.
