Pharmacological Principle: Drug absorption and bioavailability

This pillar-based pharmacology learning module uses drugs commonly employed in cardiovascular medicine to illustrate the pharmacokinetic principle of bioavailability. Using a clinical case example, it explores how changes in drug absorption affect pharmacologic action.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this module, you will be able to: Review elements of the pathophysiology of congestive heart failure
Describe factors affecting drug bioavailability
Apply drug information programs/databases to quickly access pharmacokinetic information key to management
Explain the importance of IV formulations to avoid problems with bioavailability in emergency situations
Access drug dosing recommendations through drug programs Recognize the potential for drug interactions to alter drug bioavailability
