CHAPTER 4 INTRAVENOUS INFUSION

2
**ONE COMPARTMENT MODEL WITH IV INFUSION**

This can be obtained by high degree of precision by infusing drugs i.v. via a drip or pump in hospitals

3
**PK of Drug Given by IV Infusion**

Zero-order Input (infusion rate, R) First-order Output (elimination)

4
**Integrated equation Zero-order Input (infusion rate, R)**

First-order Output (elimination) By integration,

5
**Stopping the infusion before reaching steady state**

Infusion stops

6
Stopping the Infusion Equations

7
**Steady State Concentration**

IV Infusion until reaching Css

8
**Steady State Concentration (Css)**

Theoretical SS is only reached after an infinite infusion time Rate of elimination = kel Cp

9
**Steady State Concentration (Css)**

Rate of Infusion = Rate of Elimination The infusion rate (R) is fixed while the rate of elimination steadily increases The time to reach SS is directly proportional to the half-life After one half-life, the Cp is 50% of the CSS, after 2 half-lives, Cp is 75% of the Css …….

10
**Steady State Concentration (Css)**

In clinical practice, the SS is considered to be reached after five half-lives

11
**Increasing the Infusion Rate**

If a drug is given at a more rapid infusion rate, a higher SS drug concentration is obtained but the time to reach SS is the same.

12
**Loading Dose plus IV Infusion**

DL with IV infusion at the same time Loading dose IV infusion DL + IV infusion

13
**Loading Dose plus IV Infusion**

DL is used to reach SS rapidly

14
**Reaching SS Immediately**

Let , DL = CssVd But, CssVd = R / kel Therefore, if a DL = R / kel is given SS will be reached immediately but

15
**Reaching SS Immediately**

IV DL equal to R /kel is given, followed by IV infusion at a rate R

16
DL + IV Infusion
