four pharmacokinetic processes absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion
pharmacokinetics how much of drug arrives at destination to have an effect
pharmacokinetics determines time course of drug response & appropriate dosing strategies
pharmacodynamics drug receptor interaction, pt functional status, placebo
pharmacodynamics determines the nature & intensity of the response
pharmacodynamic/pharmacokinetic drug activity ration PD/PK: takes into account the peak drug CONCENTRATION & length of TIME of drug exposure at site of infection - it is time/concentration!!
who produces beta lactamase H. flu, M.catarrhalis, anaerobic bacteria, gonorrhea also now
B-lactamase production binding is irreversible & cannot be overcome with higher dosing but CAN BE OVERCOME WITH B-LACTAMASE INHIBITORS
