The most current, hands-on book in the field, Applied Clinical Pharmacokinetics The perfect textbook for pharmacy students learning the clinical application of pharmacokinetics, which is the mathematical tools for modifying doages. Students like that each chapter includes sample problems throughout the chapter, with a ton of practice problems at the end. Answers for the practice problems are in the back, but not detailed like the sample problems)
*Changes in the 3/e includes:
*All chapters updated and revised, as needed, including critical new references
*Antibiotic individualization and monitoring sections increases use of pharmacodynamic parameters (Cmax/MIC, AUC24/MIC, Time above MIC) in addition to pharmacokinetic parameters to adjust dosages
*Anticonvulsants section includes 5 new agents (Fosphenytoin, Lamotrigine, Levetiracetam, Oxcarbazepine, Eslicarbazepine)
*Immunosuppressants section includes 1 new agent (Sirolimus),
