BT_GS 1.59 Describe the pharmacological principles of and sources of error with target controlled infusion
I am sure you have all looked at this screen. Here are some questions to test your knowledge of these models.
TRUE/FALSE Inaccurate drug delivery from the infusion pump contributes to 55% of the overall inaccuracy of a TCI infusion
TRUE/FALSE With most modern TCI algorithms actual plasma concentrations are within 20-30% of predicted concentrations 95% of the time
TRUE/FALSE The Marsh model uses age and weight to calculate the compartment size
TRUE/FALSE The Schnider model may calculate a negative lean body mass in very obese patients
TRUE/FALSE The most clinically reliable method is to target the effect site concentration observed at loss of consciousness.
