PK differences and Traditional Vancomycin Dosing

PK differences and Traditional Vancomycin Dosing

Prof. Brown summarizes the pharmacokinetic differences between Aminoglycosides and Vancomycin.

We can learn traditional Vancomycin dosing from a dosing chart from Wanfang Hospital. We consider the dose by the weight, and adjust the frequency by a patient’s renal clearance.

Besides, we have to monitor the trough level to avoid the toxicity of Vancomycin.

Do you find any dosing difference(s) between your hospital and Wanfang Hospital? And what is your opinion? We are looking forward to your sharing. Please share your opinion below.
