This unique book will present both the mathematical concepts required to understand pharmacokinetics along with applications that make it real for pharmaceutical care. It is designed for the first pharmacokinetics course, but unlike most of the other books for this course, which only deal with the mathematical constructs, this book will introduce applications as well. Pharmacokinetics is a required subject in all pharmacy programs. Pharmacokinetics describes what the body does to a drug: it involves the processes of drug absorption, biotransformation/metabolism, distribution, and elimination. This is a critical subject for pharmacists because it provides a basis for understanding how drugs produce their effects and how there can be different responses in different patients and/or different effects in the same patient at different times.
