## Study Notes

One Compartment Open Model and Constant Intravenous Infusion

- The one compartment open model describes how a drug distributes in the body and is eliminated, with all accessible sites having the same distribution kinetics.
- The time course of a drug in this model depends on the initial concentration and elimination rate constant.
- Rapid intravenous injection results in the entire dose of the drug entering the body immediately, distributing rapidly to all tissues.
- The rate of elimination follows first-order kinetics, with the elimination rate constant, elimination half-life, and clearance characterizing the elimination phase.
- The disposition of the drug in this model is monoexponential, with a linear plot of log concentration against time.
- The apparent volume of distribution (Vd) for a drug is constant, but may be altered in certain pathological conditions or changes in body composition.
- Intravenous infusion at a zero-order rate offers advantages such as convenient administration, individualized regulation, and prevention of fluctuating blood levels.
- Constant intravenous infusion leads to the drug accumulating to reach a steady-state level, where the rate of drug leaving and entering the body are the same.
- The time required to reach steady-state drug concentration in the blood is primarily dependent on the elimination half-life.
- The model for constant intravenous infusion involves zero-order input, with the amount of drug in the body increasing gradually until it reaches a steady state or plateau.
- At the steady state, the rate of change of the drug amount in the body is zero, and the equation representing this state is Ke (elimination rate constant) multiplied by the steady-state concentration (XSS) equals the constant infusion rate (K0).
- If the infusion rate is increased, a higher steady-state level is obtained, but the time needed to reach steady state remains the same.
