Lesson Four:

Pharmacokinetics after single dose administration


In this lesson, we describe the pharmacokinetic profiles arising from iv bolus and extravascular single doses of a drug and the kinetics following constant rate intravenous infusion and multiple dosage regimens. This lesson will be carried over into Lesson 5. In Lesson 4 we will consider the events after single dosing.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe the time course of a drug following different modes of administration

  • Estimate pharmacokinetic parameters from differing modes of drug administration
