IV Infusion - Example Calculations 2
After an IV Infusion - Linear One Compartment Model
Calculate the infusion rate required to maintain a desired drug concentration of 90 mg/L and an IV bolus dose to achieve that concentration rapidly. Assume a one compartment pharmacokinetic model.
The V and t1/2 values for this drug are 35.8 L and 4.6 hr respectively.
Calculate the fast infusion rate (over 45 min) required to achieve a desired drug concentration of 15 mg/L and a slow IV infusion rate to maintain that concentration. Assume a one compartment pharmacokinetic model.
The kel and V values for this drug are 0.229 hr-1 and 35.8 L respectively.
A drug has been given at an infusion rate of 50 mg/hr for 20 min. Two drug concentration values determined at 4 hr and 12 hr after the start of the infusion were 0.263 and 0.071 mg/L, respectively. Assuming a one compartment model applies for this drug estimate the elimination rate constant, elimination half-life, apparent volume of distribution and the total body clearance for the drug.
