It should be obvious also that the smaller fluid volume of a child means that a standard dose of a drug will be more concentrated and, therefore, will produce a greater drug effect. 5) receptor sites. 5 Effect of ionization on drug absorption On the right side of the the highest concentration of drug. 0), the aspirin molecules tend to remain in the blood capillaries have numerous pores, most non-ionized form (1), which promotes the passage of the drug through the cell drugs can move from blood and enter body walls (2) to the blood.

5. Although most drugs are cleared from the blood by firstorder kinetics, under certain conditions some drugs are eliminated according to the zero-order model. Zero-order kinetics means that drug molecules are cleared at a constant rate regardless of drug concentration. Ethyl alcohol is one drug that is eliminated by zero-order kinetics when administered in high doses. 0 ounce of 100-proof alcohol per hour. 8 First-order kinetics of drug clearance Exponential elimination of drug from the blood occurs when clearance during a fixed time interval is always 50% of the drug remaining in blood.

Recreational drugs also are most often used repeatedly rather than on only a single occasion.
