One Compartment Oral
Chapter 8 Problem 2
Plot of Cp versus Time after Oral Administration
One Compartment Model
Consider a drug with the parameter values in healthy subjects: F = 0.30; V = 290 L; kel = 0.173 hr-1; ka = 3.0 hr-1; CL = 860 ml/min.
Plot a concentration versus time curve after an oral dose of 80 mg.
Contrast this with the results obtained with the same dose given to a patient with severe cirrhosis. Use the parameter values: F = 0.42; V = 380 L; kel = 0.063 hr-1; ka = 3.0 hr-1; CL = 580 ml/min. Wood et al., 1978.
Add a second line with these parameter values using the Plot Line button.
