Objectives

  • Examine the following pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic terminology as pertains to theophylline: Therapeutic range, half-life clearance, volume of distribution, and biovaliability.
  • Distinguish a drug sample appropriate time to sample theophylline following: An oral dose and An intravenous dose
  • Calculate a Vd and loading dose of theophylline considering the following factors: a. Weight; b. Ideal body weight; C. Renal function; and d. Desired plasma concentration
  • Analyze what factors (drugs and disease states) may be associated with an altered clearance of theophylline.
  • Calculate a CL theophylline and maintenance dose to achieve Cpssmax, Cpssave, Cpssmin from: a. Usual literature value and patient's clinical history b. A known theophylline dosing history and a measured theophylline concentration
  • Calculate an expected theophylline concentration given the dosing history and the time of sampling.
