Analyze the relationship between normal physiology and pathological phenomena in diabetes type 2 produced by altered states across the life span. Discuss implications. Give an example to illustrate your comparison.
A drug that fully saturates the intestinal transporters required for its absorption necessitates 2.5 hours to be completely absorbed after administering a 100mg dose orally to a volunteer. Once absorbed, the drug has rapid distribution in the body. A 50 mg dose of the drug administered by IV bolus to the same volunteer (in a separate research session) results in plasma concentrations of 1800 ug/L at time 0 hr and 1150 ug/L at time 3.0 hr. If a patient with similar PK parameters took a 250 mg dose of the drug orally, what plasma concentration would you expect at the […]
“Tiny,” is a 9 week old 2.2 lb Chihuahua, who is admitted to the hospital for seizuring as a result of hypoglycemia. The veterinarian instructs you to begin 5% dextrose solution at a maintenance fluid rate. You search the storeroom but find no 5% dextrose solution.
