A new beta multi-calc was created with specialized handling of patients with a height below 60 inches. It also contains all of the functionality of the standard multi-calculator as well as the calculation of the GFR Creatinine Clearance / GFR- Multi-calc (height adjustment)

Dosing by levels
——— This new program can be used to determine when to administer the next dose of vancomycin after a supratherapeutic trough is obtained. An estimated elimination rate constant is generated from the creatinine clearance which is then used to determine the timing of the next dose based on the desired target trough concentration.
——— Use this program if the vancomcyin level is drawn early and you want to estimate the actual trough just before the next dose to determine if the current regimen is appropriate Vancomycin – Predicted Trough-Level drawn early
Vancomycin – Single-level dosing
If you would like to enter the time since the last dose was given, use this version.This new version may be especially useful if the trough was drawn late and the next dose was delayed. Example: current regimen vanco 1 gram q12h. Trough was drawn 12.5 hours after the last dose.Vancomycin single-level – dose infused early or late
The NewMedicalTerms vancomycin single-level calculator uses the Vd recommended in Bauer’s text: 0.7 L/kg. Use the advanced version if you wish to manipulate this value.

Dosing By Levels
|Dosing by levels (Full) – Enter two levels and associated times||Dosing by levels(quick) – Enter two levels and the time between levels||Dosing by levels(SINGLE) – Vancomycin -single level analysis|

|Vancomycin: Based on input from one of our visitors (below), a new vancomycin program was created. This new program can be used to determine when to administer the next dose of vancomycin after a supratherapeutic trough is obtained. An estimated elimination rate constant is generated from the creatinine clearance which is then used to determine the timing of the next dose based on the desired target trough concentration.Another version of this program was created to generate an estimated vancomycin kel value based on the creatinine clearance. Use this program if the vancomcyin level is drawn early and you want to estimate the actual trough just before the next dose to determine if the current regimen is appropriate – link to new program..) Trough calculator: The following trough calculator used to predict the actual trough value if the level is drawn early.|
