Disconnecting

I must say that this week was a pretty tough week to find some adequate time to disconnect from electronics given that we had a test to prep for and many of our resources are online.

I must say that this week was a pretty tough week to find some adequate time to disconnect from electronics given that we had a test to prep for and many of our resources are online. None the less, I did find some time on both Friday and Saturday to disconnect from my electronics. On Friday I was babysitting 4 little cute kids, so I was able to play games with them and step away from the TV, phone and computer. Then, on Saturday I was able to get away from electronics to when my family all got together to celebrate my cousin’s twins first birthday party.

It was pretty refreshing to take a couple hours each day and forget about all the electronics and constantly being connected with every little thing out there.

Vancomycin

Vancomycin Absorption: Poorly absorbed from the GI tract Metabolism: Oral doses excreted primarily in the feces; IV vancomycin eliminated almost entirely by the kidneys. Half-life in Adults: 5-8 hours (Increases in renal impairment) Use Cautiously in renal impairment (dosage reduction required if CCr is less than or equal to 80 mL/min) Adverse Reactions/Side Effects: Nephrotoxicity … Continue reading “Vancomycin”

Vancomycin

  • Absorption: Poorly absorbed from the GI tract
  • Metabolism: Oral doses excreted primarily in the feces; IV vancomycin eliminated almost entirely by the kidneys.
  • Half-life in Adults: 5-8 hours (Increases in renal impairment)
  • Use Cautiously in renal impairment (dosage reduction required if CCr is less than or equal to 80 mL/min)
  • Adverse Reactions/Side Effects: Nephrotoxicity
  • Interactions: May cause additive nephrotoxicity with other nephrotoxic and ototoxic drugs (aspirin, aminoglycosides, cyclosporine, loop diuretics)
  • Renal Impairment for IV (adults): An initial loading dose of 750 mg-1 g; serum level monitoring is optimal for choosing maintenance dose in patients with renal impairment.
  • Assessment: Monitor intake and output ratios and daily weight. Cloudy or pink urine may be a sign of nephrotoxicity.
    • May cause an increase in BUN and creatinine levels
