Tobramycin Dosing Regimen : Example 2

Tobramycin Dosing Regimen : Example 2

In this video, Prof. Lee demonstrates the steps to estimate the dosing regimen of Tobramycin.

To begin with, we can see that in the first diagram, the y-axis is the percent of normal dosage (%), and the x-axes are creatinine clearance (mL/min/1.73m2) and serum creatinine (mg/100mL).

Following that, we need to understand the steps to solve the question in the example: first, we should use the ideal body weight formula to get his IBW; secondly, estimate his creatinine clearance by C-G equation. Thirdly, predict the half-life of tobramycin for this patient.

Ultimately, we will read the dosing regimen from the table on the final slide.
