5 Matching Questions

  1. sublingual and rectal administration
  2. t 1/2
  3. Good whole food vitamin
  4. class I vs class II drugs
  5. Enteral administration. a. enteric coated pills, b.controlled release pills
  1. a (sublingual allows drug to bypass intestines and liver preventing first pass metabolism), rectal(only 50 % of drug enters the liver and is metabolism. disadvantages include irregular and incomplete absorption and irritation of the rectal mucosa)
  2. b a)enteric coated allows drug to pass thru stomach without being destroyed by gastric acid. b)controlled release preparation allows drug to release a uniform stream to absorption site over relatively long period of time (disadvantages of this include differences between patients, failure of controlled release causing dose dumping or reduced drug release)other forms of enteral administration
  3. c time for drug concentration to fall by half
  4. d clas I: drugs where the dose is less than albumin's capacity to bind (when administered, there will be excess albumin for further binding). class II:given in doses much greater than albumin's ability to bind to it (means there is much more of the drug left over, causing lots of the drug to be free and not to be bound to albumin). if you combine a class I with a class II, free drugs levels of Class I will be much higher, potentially dangerous and may cause overdose situation. Free drugs are active, bound drugs are inert)
  5. e New process

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. a. first pass hepatic metabolism: first pass metabolism refers to drugs entering hepatic portal system from intestines, b. drug solubility: very hydrophilic or hydrophobic drugs have difficulty crossing cell membranes and entering most drugs prefer to be hydrophobic and a little hydrophilic so they can pass cell membranes easily., c. chemical instability: some drugs may be affected by stomach's pH or various degradative enzymes in GI tract., d. chemicophysical properties of the drug(suzem salt form)
  2. brain, liver, kidneys have excellent blood flow, skeletal muscles and skin less, adipose tissues even less.
  3. 2/3 in intracellular compartment and 1/3 in extracellular compartment (between cells). Drugs can distrib into any of these compartments dep on size and hydrophobicity of drug. (V(d)=Total amt of drug in body/plasma concentration of drug-->Know: small V(d) indicates drug is primarily sequestered in plasma, a Large V(d) indicates that relatively little of the drug stays in plasma (if mroe than one, more disrib in body and less in bloodstream if less than one, less in body and more in bloodstream, if 1-equal)
  4. determine how readily crosses membrane. uncharged chemicals more easily pass membranes. weak acids and bases can be charged or uncharged, but each drug's charge changes based on interaction with body's pH
  5. describes action of drugs wihtin body and absorption, [How drugs move in body and how quickly] distrib, metabolism and elimination of drugs in addition to the rate or kinetics at which drug's actions begin and their duration. "ADD ME" (sp?) scheme

5 True/False Questions

  1. administration of drugsdetermine how readily crosses membrane. uncharged chemicals more easily pass membranes. weak acids and bases can be charged or uncharged, but each drug's charge changes based on interaction with body's pH


  2. passive diffusionphysiochemical makeup helps determine how easy or difficult drug passes thru membranes (concentration gradient, how lipophilic and surface area of cell)


  3. protein bindingmost drugs reversibly bind to plasma proteins. drugs bound to albumin is going to be inactive. albumin is the most common protein in the plasma, albumin keeps blood within the blood vessels. As plasma concentration of the drug increases, more binding occurs.


  4. AUCmaximum concentration:


  5. ADME schemearea under the curve: overall exposure to drug over time.
