Study Notes

Intravenous (IV) Bolus Injection

  • Involves administering a single dose of a drug through a vein, resulting in a rapid increase in plasma concentration

Pharmacokinetic Equations

  • Single and multiple doses of IV bolus can be used to determine:
    • Peak plasma concentration (Cmax)
    • Time to reach peak plasma concentration (Tmax)
    • Area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC)
    • Elimination half-life (t1/2)
    • Clearance (CL)
    • Volume of distribution (Vd)

Plasma Concentration-Time Curves

  • After single and multiple IV bolus drug administration, plasma concentration-time curves can differentiate between:
    • Absorption phase
    • Distribution phase
    • Elimination phase
    • Steady-state concentration
    • Accumulation of the drug

Elimination Half-Life

  • Determination of elimination half-life (t1/2) involves calculating the time taken for the plasma concentration to decrease by half

Primary Outcome of IV Bolus Injection

  • The primary outcome of an IV bolus injection is a rapid increase in plasma concentration, achieving therapeutic levels quickly
