Continuous infusion - steady state

Scheme or diagram

Giving the drug by infusion will alter the kinetics of the drug.


Diagram VI-1. Scheme for one compartment Intravenous Infusion

Here we have added an infusion rate constant, k0 to the diagram presented earlier, (Diagram IV-2). This is a zero order process so the units of k0 would be amount per time; for example 25 mg/min.
