A Study of Past Experimental Treatment With Dexmedetomidine in Patients With Renal Transplants

This retrospective study will examine the use of Dexmedtomidine in renal transplants.

About 15,000 Americans a year have a kidney transplant. Graft failure occurs about ~ 40% of the time. Dexmedtomidine can help prevent kidney deterioration. It has been shown to protect kidney function in animal laboratory studies. This study will be a retrospective study. Patient data from the electronic medical records will be collected and analyzed. We will examine graft failure and overall complications. We will also examine the length of hospital stay, infections, and pulmonary complications.

The team will study patients receiving fluid resuscitation during the first 48 hours after burn injury. Data collected will include fluid infusion rates, vital signs, and laboratory values. All procedures will follow UC Davis Medical Center's standard of care. Data on outcomes (organ function, ventilation duration, length of stay, and survival) will be collected at 72 hours, 96 hours, and at hospital discharge.
