Objectives: Our aim was to compare effectiveness of esmololand dexmedetomidine in the treatment of increasedhemodynamic response during anesthesia recovery period.Materials and methods: 60 ASA I-II patients whomscheduled for elective surgery with endotracheal intubationwere randomized before extubation according to theirhemodynamic parameters that were increased 20% oftheir baseline values in order to receive 1mg/kg esmolol(Group Esmolol, n= 30) or 0.5 μg/kg dexmedetomidine(Group Dexmedetomidine, n= 30). Heart rate (HR), systolicand diastolic blood pressures (SBP,DBP), peripheral oxygensaturation (SpO2), end tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2)values, extubation time, recovery time were recorded. Theduration till having pain requiring analgesic was recordedand cognitive functions were evaluated with short memoryorientation concentration test at 20th and 50th minutes.Results: After drug, HR reductions were significant at allperiods in group Dexmedetomidine (Z2-Z10: p
