Neonatal Pharmacodynamic and Pharmacokinetic Characteristics and Implications for Pharmacotherapeutic Decisions
This presentation will focus on the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic principles in neonatal populations and the implications for medication selection and monitoring. We will discuss parameters related to these principles and how pharmacotherapeutic regimens are determined using them. Absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of medications and the clinical impact of neonatal patient characteristics and medication properties on pharmacotherapeutic decisions will also be presented. We will also contrast medications and why medications may be preferred for some neonatal disease states due to medication characteristics. The information provided will act as a foundation for pharmacotherapeutic recommendations based on patient and mediation specific properties for neonatal disease states.
