What is Pharmacokinetics?
Pharmacokinetics is a branch of pharmacology dedicated to determine the fate of substances administered to a living organism. The substances of interest include any chemical xenobiotic such as: pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, food additives, cosmetics, etc. It attempts to analyze chemical metabolism and to discover the fate of a chemical from the moment that it is administered up to the point at which it is completely eliminated from the body. Pharmacokinetics is the study of how an organism affects a drug, whereas pharmacodynamics (PD) is the study of how the drug affects the organism. Both together influence dosing, benefit, and adverse effects, as seen in PK/PD models.
How to Calculate Concentration of Drug given Rate of Infusion of Drug?
Concentration of Drug given Rate of Infusion of Drug calculator uses Concentration of Drug = Rate of Infusion/Volume of Plasma Cleared to calculate the Concentration of Drug, The Concentration of drug given rate of infusion of drug formula is defined as the ratio of the rate of infusion required to balance elimination to the amount of drug in a given volume of plasma. Concentration of Drug is denoted by C_{ss} symbol.
How to calculate Concentration of Drug given Rate of Infusion of Drug using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Concentration of Drug given Rate of Infusion of Drug, enter Rate of Infusion (k_{in}) & Volume of Plasma Cleared (CL) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Concentration of Drug given Rate of Infusion of Drug calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.114583 = 55/0.00048.
