A case for Gentamycin : 1

Prof. Lee uses a brief case for Gentamycin to demonstrate the previous discussed idea.

Do you still remember how to calculate the half-life and peak concentration?

Please try the following exercise: Adapted from the example in this video, given K=0.231 hr-1, t 1/2=3.0 hr. If her serum Gentamycin concentration is 5 mg/L at 12:30, what is the concentration at 15:30?

The answer is not in the video, so please make your own calculations.

If you have difficulty on it, please go back to the previous video to review the complete idea, or share your problem below.
