Core Principles Section 2: Pharmacokinetics in Toxicological Practice

AIMS

The aim of this module is to revisit some of the basic pharmacokinetic concepts described in Section 1 by looking at their influence in two specific poisonings (Paracetamol/Acetaminpohen and Lithium).

In doing so your will be effectively learning how to manage paracetamol and lithium. This requires an understanding of hepatic metabolism and renal elimination.

In subsequent modules related to specific toxins your should consider the kinetics and dynamics in each case.

READINGS

There are specific readings in each of the activity sections for paracetamol and lithium.
