This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

Our primary aim is to determine the analgesic efficacy and opioid-sparing effect of perioperative dexmedetomidine for acute pain after abdominal surgery in adults.

Secondary aims are to establish the effects of dexmedetomidine on PONV, gastrointestinal function and mobilization together with the side effect profile of dexmedetomidine.
