Demystifying Drug Dosing in Obese Patients


Demystifying Drug Dosing in Obese Patients

by Brandon R. Shank (Author)


This is a concise reference, including summary tables for drug dosing in obese patients. This resource will provide practitioners with information regarding pharmacokinetic parameters that impact obese patients to aid them with dosing medications. It addresses specific therapeutic areas, primarily for acute care settings with some-overlap for drugs used in ambulatory settings. Each chapter has a summary table that provides dosing information with recommended body weight to be used for dosing calculations (adjusted body weight, actual body weight, or ideal body weight), and if clearance or other pharmacokinetic parameters are affected.
