Summary

The investigators aim to evaluate the roles of α7nAchR in the mechanisms of dexmedetomidine in improving delirium after cardiac surgery. The results of this study would lay the foundation for revealing the mechanisms of dexmedetomidine improving delirium after cardiac surgery and provide a new idea to the early treatment of delirium.
