When the infusion is discontinued order extra super avana 260 mg line erectile dysfunction pills in malaysia, serum concentrations decline in a straight line if the graph is plotted on semilogarithmic axes buy extra super avana 260mg free shipping erectile dysfunction causes and solutions. When using log10 graph paper generic extra super avana 260 mg visa erectile dysfunction pills uk, the elimination rate con- stant (ke) can be computed using the following formula: slope =−ke/2 discount 260 mg extra super avana erectile dysfunction medications online. It is known from previ- ous hospital admissions that the patient has the following pharmacokinetic parameters for theophylline: V = 40 L and k = 0. The serum concentration of theophylline in this e patient after receiving the drug for 8 hours and at steady state can be calculated: C = −ket −1 −(0. It is possible to compute the theo- 0 e phylline serum concentration 6 hours after the infusion stopped in either circumstance. If the infusion only ran for 8 hours, the serum concentration 6 hours after the infusion stopped −ketpostinfusion −(0. If the infusion ran until steady state was achieved, the serum concentration 6 hours after the infusion ended −ketpostinfusion −(0. Even if serum concentrations exhibit a distribution phase after the drug infusion has ended, it is still possible to use one compartment model intravenous infusion equations for the drug without a large amount of error. When administered this way, these aminoglycoside antibiotics have distribution phases that last about one-half hour. Using this strategy, aminoglycoside serum concentrations are obtained no sooner than one-half hour after a 30-minute infusion in order to avoid the distribution phase. If aminoglyco- sides are infused over 1 hour, the distribution phase is very short and serum concentra- tions can be obtained immediately. Because the patient received gentamicin before, it is known that the volume of distribution is 20 L, the elimination rate constant equals 0. To 1/2 e compute the gentamicin concentration at the end of infusion, a one compartment model intravenous infusion equation can be employed: C = [k /(k V)](1 − e−ket) = [(100 mg/1 h)/ −1 0 e (0. If a steady- state concentration is obtained after a continuous intravenous infusion has been running uninterrupted for 3–5 half-lives, the drug clearance (Cl) can be calculated by rearranging the steady-state infusion formula: Cl = k0/Css. For example, a patient receiving pro- cainamide via intravenous infusion (k0 = 5 mg/min) has a steady-state procainamide con- centration measured as 8 mg/L. Procainamide clearance can be computed using the fol- lowing expression: Cl = k0/Css = (5 mg/min) / (8 mg/L) = 0. If the infusion did not run until steady state was achieved, it is still possible to com- pute pharmacokinetic parameters from postinfusion concentrations. In the following example, a patient was given a single 120-mg dose of tobramycin as a 60-minute infu- sion, and concentrations at the end of infusion (6. By plotting the serum concentration/time information on semilogarithmic axes, the half-life can be determined by measuring the time it takes for serum concentrations to decline by one-half (Figure 2-6), and equals 2 hours in this case. Half-life (t1/2) is determined by measuring the time needed for serum concentrations to decline by 1/. Alternatively, the elimination rate constant can be e 1/2 calculated without plotting the concentrations using the following equation: ke =−(ln C1 − ln C2)/(t1 − t2), where t1 and C1 are the first time/concentration pair and t2 and C2 are the second time/concentration pair; ke =−[ln (6. The elimination rate e constant can be converted into the half-life using the following equation: t1/2 = 0. The volume of distribution (V) can be computed using the following equation4: −kte ′ k 0 1− e V = −kt′ k [ − ee ] e max predose where k0 is the infusion rate, ke is the elimination rate constant, t′=infusion time, Cmax is the maximum concentration at the end of infusion, and Cpredose is the predose concentra- tion. A large absorption rate constant allows drug to enter the body quickly while a small elimination rate constant permits drug to enter the body more slowly. The solid line shows the concentration/time curve on semilogarithmic axes for an elimination rate con- stant equal to 2 h−1. The dashed and dotted lines depict serum concentration/time plots for elimi- nation rate constants of 0. The absorption rate con- stant describes how quickly drug is absorbed with a large number indicating fast absorp- tion and a small number indicating slow absorption (Figure 2-7). An example of the use of this equation would be a patient that is administered 500 mg of oral procainamide as a capsule. It is known from prior clinic visits that the patient has a half- life equal to 4 hours, an elimination rate constant of 0. The capsule that is administered to the patient has an absorption rate constant equal to 2 h−1, and an oral bioavailability fraction of 0. The procainamide serum concentration 4 hours after a single dose would be equal to: FkaD kt kt C = e e − e a Vka − ke −1 (0 85. Since the absorption rate constant is also hard to measure in patients, it is also desirable to avoid drawing drug serum concentrations during the absorption phase in clinical situa- tions. This approach works very well when the extravascular dose is rapidly absorbed and not a sustained- or extended-release dosage form. From previous clinic visits, it is known that the patient has a volume of distribution of 60 L and an elimination rate constant equal to 0. If two or more postabsorption, postdistribution serum concentrations are obtained after an extravascular dose, the volume of distribution, elimination rate constant, and half-life can be computed (Figure 2-8). After graphing the serum con- centration/time data on semilogarithmic axes, the time it takes for serum concentrations to decrease by one-half can be measured and equals 14 hours. Since this was the ﬁrst dose of valproic acid, the extrapolated concentration at time = 0 (C0 = 70 mg/L) is used to estimate the hybrid volume of distribution/bioavailability (V/F) parameter: V/F = D/C0 = 750 mg/70 L = 10. 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. Half-life (t1/2) is determined by measuring the time needed for serum concentrations to decline by 1/. The concentration/ e 1/2 time line can be extrapolated to the concentration axis to derive the concentration at time zero (C0 = 70 mg/L) and used to compute the hybrid constant volume of distribution/bioavailability fraction (V/F = D/C0). The elimination rate constant can be translated into the half- life using the following equation: t = 0. The hybrid 1/2 e constant volume of distribution/bioavailability (V/F) is computed by taking the quo- tient of the dose and the extrapolated serum concentration at time = 0. The extrapolated serum concentration at time = zero (C0) is calculated using a variation of the intra- venous bolus equation: C = C/e−ket, where t and C are a time/concentration pair that 0 occur after administration of the extravascular dose in the postabsorption and postdistrib- ution phases. In this situa- tion, the time/concentration pair at 24 hours will be used (time = 24 hours, concentration = −k t −(0. The hybrid volume of distribution/bioavailability constant (V/F) is then computed: V/F = D/C0 = 750 mg / (70 mg/L) = 10. Multiple-Dose and Steady-State Equations In most cases, medications are administered to patients as multiple doses, and drug serum concentrations for therapeutic drug monitoring are not obtained until steady state is achieved. For these reasons, multiple dose equations that reﬂect steady-state conditions are usually more useful in clinical settings than single dose equations. Fortunately, it is simple to convert single dose compartment model equations to their multiple dose and steady-state counterparts. At steady state, the number of doses (n) is large, the exponential term in the numerator of the multiple dosing factor (−nkiτ) becomes a large negative number, and the exponent approaches zero. Therefore, the steady-state version of the multiple dosing factor −kiτ , becomes the following: 1/(1 − e ) where ki is the rate constant found in the exponential of the single dose equation and τ is the dosage interval.
