Kingston upon Hull, often simply called Hull, is a city located in East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The population of the city was reported to be aboutas of ry, altered fluid status, sepsis requiring vasopressor therapy, and/or concomitant nephrotoxic agents. A high dose vancomycin nomogram (HDVN) was developed to recommend a dose and frequency to target troughs of 15 to 20 mg/L.

Methods: Adult patients 18 years or older who were started on vancomycin using the HDVN and had at least one vancomycin trough drawn at steady state between July.

Vancomycin is routinely used for empiric antibiotic therapy in children. Higher-serum-concentration targets for serious infections are now being recommended. This recommendation may result in aggressive dosing with increased potential for toxicity.

Vancomycin has demonstrated dose-response and dose-toxicity relationships with a relatively narrow therapeutic index. Thus, careful dosing and monitoring is warranted. Because of vancomycin's relatively long half-life, administration of a loading dose when initiating vancomycin may be beneficial in more rapidly achieving effective on: Conan MacDougall, PharmD, MAS.

At levels above 80 mg/L, vancomycin is potentially nephrotoxic and ototoxic. The normal half-life of vancomycin is approximately 6 hours, but clearance of the drug is dependent on renal function. It is important to monitor the level of serum vancomycin and adjust the dosage on an individual basis in patients with impaired renal function.
