Sample text

Most drugs given intravenously cannot be given as an actual intravenous bolus because of side effects related to rapid injection. A short infusion of 5–30 minutes can avoid these types of adverse effects, and if the intravenous infusion time is very short compared to the half-life of the drug so that a large amount of drug is not eliminated during the infusion time, intravenous bolus equations can still be used. For example, a patient is given a theophylline loading dose of 400 mg intravenously over 20 minutes.

A patient with liver failure and a patient with heart failure need to be treated with a new antiarrhythmic drug.

For example, a patient is given an oral dose of valproic acid 750 mg as capsules. 3 mg/L, respectively. After graphing the serum concentration/time data on semilogarithmic axes, the time it takes for serum concentrations to decrease by one-half can be measured and equals 14 hours. 0495 h−1. The concentration/time line can be extrapolated to the y-axis where time = 0. 7 L. Even though the absolute volume of distribution and bioavailability cannot be computed without the administration of intravenous drug, the hybrid constant can be used in extravascular equations in place of V/F.
