Hi,
Post some calculations and formulas on Pharmacokinetics and any other calculations which would be good for all test takers as a last Minute Review.
Spare some time for this please.

1)A DESIRED STATE PLASMA LEVEL OF THEOPHYLLINE IS 15mg/L.AVERAGE T1/2 OF THEOPHYLLINE IS 4hrs,APPARENT VOLUME OF DISTRIBUTION IS 25L.
What is infusion nessary?

Kel=0.693/t1/2
Kel=0.693/4=0.175
K0=Kel*Cp*VL=0.175*15*25=63.8mg/hr.

2)Cpss=K0/Cl

3)CL=Kel*V

4)Total Body clearence
Total body clearance, CL, can be separated into clearance due to renal elimination, CLr and clearance due to metabolism, CLm.
Total body clearance, CL, can be separated into clearance due to renal elimination, CLr and clearance due to metabolism, CLm.
CLr = ke * V (renal clearance) and
CLm = km * V (metabolic clearance)
CL = CLr + CLm

Cp0=Dose/V
Dose=V*Cp0

Hi Starzs9!

Goodwork, just want to add , Carbamazepine is the only one which is also a self inducer, that is increase its own metabolism.

Buffer capacity = 0.576 x c

t 90&#37; = 0.152 x t 1/2

Reaching 90%, 95%, 99% without Loading dose ( D L) takes 3.32 , 4.32 , 6.65 half-lives respectively.

Keep up the all good work and Goodluck.

Hi!

Important to remember few things,

Aminoglycosides + Furosemide (loop diruretics) = Increased Ototoxicity

Aminogylcosides + Cephalosporins = Increased Nephrotoxixity.

Only Tetracycline that can be used in Renal Impaired patients = Doxycycline

Demecocycline used in SIADH (Syndrome of Inappropriate Anti diuretic hormone)

Floroquinolone main side effect on CNS.

Chloremphenicol main side effects = Hemolytic Anemia and Graybaby Syndrome.

Goodluck.

Accuracy
is a measure of how close a number is to the actual value (how far from the actual value a particular measurement falls). In many experiments, accuracy cannot be determined; only an estimate of the accuracy can be found, because the actual value is not known.

Precision
refers to how close repeated measurements are to each other (a measure of the variation present in a set of readings

T-test:

the t-test assesses whether the means of two groups are statistically different from each other

variable :
is any entity that can take on different values

chi-square test
A chi-square test may be applied on a contingency table for testing a null hypothesis of independence of rows and columns

F-test
is any statistical test in which the test statistic has an F-distribution if the null hypothesis is true.

starzs9
06-20-2008, 04:37 AM
validity
the term refers to the degree to which a study supports the intended conclusion drawn from the results.
MEDIAN OR MODE
Median or Mode is generally expressed as a middle value of experiment, if number of values are even, then average of middle values should be considered. To find median or mode of experiment data, one should first arrange the data in ascending or descending order

pinky786
06-20-2008, 05:08 AM
Hi Starzs9!

Good Job, what I read about median and mode is , median in the middle value when you arranged the data, if odd number the middle value is median ,if even , add the two middle and divide by two, but the mode is the value that occurs the most frequently in a data set (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_set) or a probability distribution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Probability_distribution). So Median and Mode are two different terms, correct me if I am wrong, I know in Mannon he used it everywhere together.

Goodluck.

You are right. Median and Mode are different. I got them from my statistics class.
In manan, they are the same

Hi everyone,

If median and mode are different, how would you calculate when asked for mode in the question. Do you look for the number that appears more frequently in the data set

1. Standard deviation (SD) is sqaure root of variance
2. Coefficient of variance or relative standard deviation = SD/x (x is mean)

What are parametric and non parametric tests? Can someone explain those

Question,

What is the initial change in total body weight when beginning TPN, increase in:
1- lean body mass weight only

MN2000
06-20-2008, 05:17 PM
2- lean body mass&total water body weight
3-total body water only
4-total fat only

janis70
06-20-2008, 05:35 PM
I think the increase is due of increase in fluid. In CPR defines total body water as an estimative of lean body mass (pag 1130), so I'm confused.
If I have to pick one, I'll pick lean body mass only.
Please correct me if i"m wrong.
Thanks

10ml , 30 ml , 50 ml or 100 ml.

Hi MN2000!

Maybe this can help Elsevier Article Locator (http://linkinghub.elsevier.com/retrieve/pii/S0899900798000537)
If I have to pick I will pick 2, that both the body weight as well as Lean body mass will change.

common herbs:
1)Chamomile
Chamomile is often used in the form of a tea as a sedative.
Close monitoring is recommended for patients who are taking medications to prevent blood clotting (anticoagulants) such as warfarin.
2)Echinacea
Echinacea has been touted to be able to boost the body's ability to fight off infection.
Echinacea can cause liver toxicity
It should be avoided in combination with other medications that can affect the liver (such as ketaconazole, leflunomide (Arava), methotrexate (Rheumatrex), isoniazide (Nizoral
3)St. John's Wort
herbal treatment for depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders
St. John's wort may also leave nerve changes in sunburned areas
St. John's wort can also cause headaches, dizziness, sweating, and agitation when used in combination with serotonin reuptake inhibitor medications such as fluoxetine (Prozac) and paroxetine (Paxil).
4)Garlic
Garlic has been used to lower blood pressure and cholesterol
Garlic may decrease normal blood clotting and should be used with caution in patients taking medications to prevent blood clotting (anticoagulants) such as warfarin /Coumadin.
5)Ginko Biloba
This herb is very popular as a treatment for dementia
not recommended to be taken with aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (Advil), naproxen (Aleve) or Motrin), or medications to prevent blood clotting (anticoagulants) such as warfarin (Coumadin). Ginko should be avoided in patients with epilepsy taking seizure medicines, such as phenytoin (Dilantin), carbamazepine (Tegretol), and phenobarbital.
6)Ginseng
Ginseng has been used to stimulate the adrenal gland, and thereby increase energy
beneficial effect on reducing blood sugar .in patients with diabetes mellitus
Its use in pregnancy is not recommended
avoided in patients taking aspirin, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen (Advil), naproxen (Aleve) or Motrin), or medications to prevent blood clotting (anticoagulants) such as warfarin (Coumadin)
7)Ginger
Ginger may lead to blood thinning.
It is not recommended to be taken with medications that prevent blood clotting (anticoagulants) such as warfarin (Coumadin).
8)Black Cohosh
natural way to treat menopausal symptoms

St.Johns wart is also a potent inducer as well as smoking and chronic alcohol use.

Grapefruit is an inhibitor..it interacts with many medications e.g. Statins, Cyclosporin,nifedipine.

Hi Pinky,

I am still confused, according to the article the gaining of weight all over the study period, what about the initial change of weight in the beginning of TPN? & as Janis70 said In CPR defines total body water as an estimative of lean body mass.what do you think the best answer will be?

pinky786
06-20-2008, 07:02 PM
Thaizides Diuretics cause Hypokalemia, Hyponatremia, Hypercalcemia, Hyperurecemia, Hyperglycemia, should not be given in Gout patients and in Diabetes and also if creatinine clearence is less than 50ml/min.

Loop Diuretics are prefered choice in renal failure and also in hypercalcemia as they cause hypcalcemia. They cause Ototoxicity, the least ototoxic in the group is Bumetanide.

Aminoglycoside + loop diuretics = Increased Ototoxicity.

IMMUNOLOGY:
substance which evoke immunse response "IMMUNOGEN"
IMMUNOGEN+ANTIBODY=ANTIGEN.
ANTIBODY+ANTIGEN=HAPTONS OR EPITOPES OR DETERMINANTS
IMMUNOGENS are like about 10,000 daltons.
Immunogens are "PROTEINS"
PENCILLIN(ALONE)=antigenic and poorly immunogenic.
PENCILLIN+PROTEIN=HIGHLY IMMUNOGENIC.

IGE-ALLERGIC DISEASES.
IGM,IGD-BETA GLOBULIN.
IGG,IGA-GAMMA GLOBULIN.
B-CELLS-IGG ANTIBODIES.
IgD-DIFFERENTIAL B-LYMPHOCYTES.

TYPES OF REACTONS:

TYPE I
Immediate
allergic hypersensitive.
within 5 min
IgE,IgG
Basophils and mast cells are involved.

TYPE II

primarly mediated by IgG,IgM and complemet.
examples:
HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA
ERYTHROBLASTOSIS FETALIS
GOOD PASTURE SUNDROME.
GRAVES DISEASE.
MYASTHENIA GRAVIS
TRANSFUSION REACTIONS.

TYPE III

Cell Mediated Immunity = Involve T Lymphocytes and does not involve antibodies or compliment for initiation rather involve Macrophages, NK-Cells and Cytotoxic T-cell.

Humoral Mediated Immunity = Involve B lymphocyes mediated and requires Compliment and initiation.

Innate Immune System = Non Specific Immunity = provide Immediate Defense.

Adaptive Immune System = Long term Immunity = Involve T-cells and B-cells.

Hi MN 2000,
About the parenteral nutrition question, I just talked to a physician friend and he told me the increase is because of total body water only, especially in the beginning.(the pourpose of the parenteral nutricion is give the caloric needs to mantein the patient)
My confusion was because the CPR defines this as an estimate of lean body mass, but lean body mass include everything less fat...
So, the answer would be : total body water only.
Maybe I'm still wrong, but it makes sense

Hi Pinly,

I cannot figure out the reference at present, but i had made a note of it in my notes. And yes after looking at the question in Manan shroff. But even i cant recall which question it was. But i guess, dont worry, i think the choice will be Bumetanide in a given set, since thats the only drug that is unique

pinky786
06-23-2008, 01:06 PM
Hi Realgk!

I found that question, its in Rx Exams CD's For FPGEE. In the 5th CD, section 2, there is a question which of the following is the least Ototoxic of all ? , and the answer is Bumetanide.

Goodluck

ENHANCEMENT OF DRUG EFFECTS:
Occurs when two DIFFERENT drugs with same effect are given toghther resulting in a adrug effect that is equal in magnitude to the sum of individual effects of two drugs.
example:Trimethoprim/sulfamethosone.

SYNERGISM:
occurs when two drugs with same effect are given toghther,producing a drug effect that is greater in megnitude than sum of the individual effects of 2 drugs.
example:pencillin,gentamycin

POTENTIATION:
when one drug lacking an effect of its own,increases the effect of another drug that is active.
