What has changed before and after steady-state : Summary

What has changed before and after steady-state: Summary

Prof. Brown describes the whole process of the ups and downs in serum concentration (C), from the moment fu increases until steady-state is reestablished.

The final brain exercise is about clearance (CL) changing.

The key to predicting serum level changes is: Volume (V) is proportional to dose, and dosing interval (tau) is inversely proportional to k.

This is the final part of this week. Feel free to share some of the key points you have learned or any question you may have ! In the next chapter, we will focus on evaluating a patient’s renal and hepatic function.
