Pharmacokinetics

  • Absorption

    • Bioavailability

    • First Pass Effect

  • Distribution

  • Metabolism

  • Excretion


Pharmacodynamics l.jpg

Pharmacodynamics

  • Onset, Peak, & Duration

    • Onset - time it takes for a therapeutic response.

    • Peak – maximum therapeutic response

    • Duration – length of time that drug [ ] is sufficient

Life span considerations l.jpg

Life Span Considerations

  • Polypharmacy and Drug Use

  • Physiologic Changes

    • Slowed gastric emptying
