Have you ever had trouble adjusting a patient's gentamycin doses? The through and peak levels never seem to go the way you would have expected them to? This App will help you!

Gentamycin is a aminoglycoside antibiotic used in the prophylaxis and treatment of infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria, by inhibiting proper cell wall synthesis.

Gentamycin's activity is considered to be dependent on the peak level. Therefore, it is essential to adapt the doses according to these levels.

As Gentamycin is considered a nephrotoxic and ototoxic drug, and this toxicity seems to be associated with high through levels, it is also essential to adapt the doses according to the measured through level.

This App calculates the proper doses, based on the following pharmacokynetic parameters:
Ke

Distribution volume.

Gentamycin will help you adapt your treatments according to the proper equations. You will no longer have to guess what the best adjustments might be, it will be written on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
