T01) Find Ct from C0, k and t

50. Pharmacokinetics 50.2) Plasma concentrations over time 50.2.1) Plasma concentrations over time

T01: Later plasma concentration Normal 1

Total tried:       Correct:       Wrong:

A 115 Kg patient was intravenously administered a drug. The plasma concentration was found to be 4.08 mg/L, when the blood was first collected. If the drug follows a first order elimination and the elimination rate constant (k) is `0.015 \quad h^{-1}`, then determine the plasma concentration after 3.4 hours.

lb equals 3.877 mg/L kg

    For a first order process,
    Plugging the values in this equation, we get:
    `C_{t}=4.08 × e^(- 0.015 × 3.4)`
    `∴ C_{t}=3.877`
    Thus, the later concentration is: 3.877 mg/L. (Ans).
