Describe physiologic factors and variables that affect drug actions in the body including absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion
Absorptiono Factors that influence medication absorption are:o Route of Administration • IV produces most rapid absorption • Mucous membranes and respiratory airways are quickly absorbed because their tissues contain many blood vesselso Ability of Medication to dissolve • Acidic medications pass through the gastric mucosa rapidlyo Blood Flow to the Site of Administration • Areas that have more blood supply with experience enhanced absorption, facilitating the passage of the medication into bloodo Body Surface Area • Large surface area= fast rate of absorptiono Lipid Solubility of a Medication • High lipid solubility= fast rate of absorptionDistributiono The rate and extent of distribution depend on the physical and chemical properties of medications and the physiology of the person taking the medicationo Rate depends on vascularity of tissues and organso Conditions that limit blood flow or blood perfusion inhibit distribution of a medicationo To be distributed to an organ, a medication has to pass through all of organs tissues and biological membraneso The degree to which medications bind to serum proteins such as albumin affects medication distribution.Metabolismo Liver degrades many harmful chemicals before they become distributed to the tissuesExcretiono Kidneys are the main organs for medication excretiono GI tract= another route for med excretion
