Absorption and Distribution of DrugsCE
Produced by: DigitalMed
This course covers two essential components of how drugs move through the body: absorption and distribution. Absorption has to do with how much of a drug is taken in from the site where it is received by the body. In this course, aborption is shown to be strongly associated with the route of drug administration (for example oral or parenteral) and the acidic or basic characteristics of the drug. Distribution pertains to the particular cells and interstitial areas that receive the drug. This course shows how drug distribution is related to fat solubility, and explains the concept of apparent volume of distribution (AVD) and how this is calculated. This activity is intended for nurses.
