Hello my name is Blair Henderson and I am a fourth year medical student at
the University of Manitoba (in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada).
I am currently developing a kinetic calculator for the Linux operating
system. I am using a set of equations that were published by Dr. P Maitre
in his paper:
" Evaluating the Accuracy of Using Population Pharmacokinetic Data to
Predict Plasma Concentrations of Alfentanil",
Anesthesiology 68:59-67, 1988
In this paper, a set of equations are developed that allow one to model
the quantity of drug in each compartment, by knowing: the starting
quantity in each compartment, the kinetic constants, and any boluses or
infusions in to the central compartment.
I have been able to get this to work quite well. I would like to now
expand on this and also model/predict the effect site concentrations.
This is my stumbling block, I do not have the expertise to develop the
equations for adding in the effect site compartment. Is there anyone out
there that knows of published equations, or knows of the equations?
Thanks for the patience with this long message.
