T10) Find elimin. rate from dose, Vd and Cl

50. Pharmacokinetics 50.2) Plasma concentrations over time 50.2.1) Plasma concentrations over time

T01: Later plasma concentration Normal 1


Total tried:       Correct:       Wrong:

A patient is given 88 mg of a drug in IV push. The volume of distribution of the drug in this patient is 20 L. If the clearance is 2.89, then determine the rate of elimination.

lb equals 12.72 mg/h kg

    For rate of elimination (dX/dt), we can write:
    `(dX)/dt = Cp × Cl`

    Plasma concentration is obtained by
    `Cp=X/(Vd)=(88 \quad mg)/(20 \quad L)`
    `\implies (dX)/dt = (88 \quad mg)/(20 \quad L) × 2.89 \quad L/h`

    `∴ (dX)/dt = 12.716 \quad (mg)/h` (Ans).
