‘Pt A, 50yo, 65kg on Vancomycin 750mg TDS

Trough: < 16umol/L, Peak: 25 umol/L. Recommendation?’ answer in 5 minutes

Starts to scribble formula

*tap tap tap* brutally pressing the calculator buttons

Units, intermediate answers and uncountable dashes and strikes on dubious answers.

‘Times up’ .

That is one of the many mock TDM drills over the past 3 days, case study presentation and clinical pharmacokinetic assessment a day after TDM clerkship rotation.

So, a week full of kinetics, numbers, formulas and mathematics.

Time to hibernate.
