Rapid Attainment of Steady-State Plasma Drug Concentrations Within Precise Limits in Multicompartment Mammillary Systems

We have previously described a method of rapidly obtaining a specified steady-state plasma concentration of an intravenous drug within precise limits. However the method is limited to drugs whose disposition may be characterized by an open two-compartment system. In this paper, we illustrate how the method can be extended to drugs whose disposition may be characterized by a mammillary model with any number of compartments. Refinements of our previous technique are also described.
