  21. Most dangerous route?
    Intraveneous. It's Direct.
  22. Will you put cream to treat gangrene?
    No. That's a factor affecting bioavailability. The treatment will not be effectively absorbed.
  23. Why don't you crush a med that's used for 24-hour relief?
    It's meant to be absorbed over a 24 hour period. If it's crushed before given, the whole dose will be absorbed at once.
  24. What does enteric coating a tablet do?
    It coats the med in a basic coat so it will not be absorbed before the small intestine.
  25. Why is it important to know about protein binding?
    If a med is 50% protein binding, then half of it's dose will stick to a protein in the body while the other half does it's job. If the patient isn't eating, then there isn't an protein for the med to attach. That means both parts are free to do it's job = double the dose.
  26. Patient has a kidney problem. Would you give a fat loving or a water loving med?
    Fat loving meds excrete through many parts of the body. So it works well with those with a bad kidney.

  37. Therapeutic index.
    Ratio between benefits and toxic effects.
  38. Additive effect.
    Take tylenol and codeine for example. Both can treat pain alone. But if you raise the dose for one, you raise the chances of side effects. So you give both at the same time in low doses to treat the intense pain without the increase chances of side effects.
  39. Synergistic effect.
