# One Compartment IV Bolus

## IV Bolus - Example 4

Question: After an I.V. bolus dose of 500 mg the data collected in Table 4.14.1 were collected. Calculate kel and V.

Table 4.14.1 Concentration versus Time Data
 Time (hr) 1 2 3 4 6 8 10 Cp (mcg/ml) 72 51 33 20 14 9 4

Plot the data on semi-log graph paper (Figure 4.14.1) and determine Cp1, Cp2, t1 and t2. Figure 4.14.1 Plot of Cp versus Time on Semi-log Graph Paper After an I.V. Bolus Dose of 500 mg.    and Figure 4.14.2 V from dose and Cp0

and Equation 4.12.3 Clearance from kel and V

Calculator 4.14.1 Calculate Parameter Values from Two Data Points from a Line drawn through Data Collected after an IV Bolus

 IV Bolus Dose: First concentration: Time of first Cp value: Second concentration: Time of second Cp value: kel is: t1/2 is: Cp0 is: V is: and Total Body Clearance is:

If you get the Error Message Value is not a numeric literal or NaN this probably means that one of the required parameter fields is empty or a value is inappropriate.

For practice you can plot these data collected after an IV bolus dose and estimate pharmacokinetic parameters.
