The half-life of the drug in particular compartments can be estimated. For example, in the GI tract, where dx/dt = - ax, x ( t ) = x 0 e - at , the half-life is the value t where x ( t ) = x 0 / 2. Thus, the half-life is t = ln (2) /a . Suppose time is measured in hours and half-life of a particular drug in the GI tract is 1 / 2 hours and in the blood it is 5 hours, then a = 2 ln (2) and b = ln (2) 5 . The solution for the pharmacokinetics model is graphed in Figure 7 J. D. Flores ( USD ) Math-735: Math Modeling Spring 2013 35 / 41

Consider the case where drug injection is periodic. This is a reasonable situation because prescription drugs are often taken at specific intervals of time. Suppose a drug is prescribed as follows: d ( t ) = 2 , 0 t 1 / 2 , 0 , 1 / 2 < t < 6 , where d ( t + 6) = d ( t ) ([Yeargers, E. K., Shonkwiler, R.W. & Herod J.V., 1996]). The drug is taken orally every six hours and released into GI tract over a half-hour period. J. D. Flores ( USD ) Math-735: Math Modeling Spring 2013 38 / 41

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
