Drug dose adjustments for emergency & critical care patients

17 Nov 2022
RVC Clinical Theatre 2

This session will discuss problems with dose adjustment in critical care patients. Many patients have organ dysfunction and these considerations can affect drug therapy.

  • * Patients with decreased renal function may need dose adjustment
  • * Patients with liver disease rarely have problems metabolizing drugs
  • * Some critical care patients may have augmented clearance, which decreases effective drug concentrations.
