I am interested to find out from those who are involved in monitoring
Amikacin use in their institutions.
Our use have increased with the outbreak of Acinectobacter baumannii
We recommend 7.5mg/kg iv q8h or q12h with peak and trough depending on
function or 15mg/kg for once daily dosing with TROUGH levels only.
We are reviewing literature to assess what random level ranges (8-14
DOSE) to recommend to our lab and coming across variable data.
Please let me know if you have any guidelines for amikacin use and what
level ranges are acceptable in your institution
Any other suggestions will be highly appreciated
