  16. 16. Aminoglycosides and Tricyclic Glycopeptides <ul><li>Drugs that are oto and nephro toxic require blood monitoring levels. Amikacin,Gentamycin,Tobramycin and Vancomycin require monitoring. The Trough levels are drawn just prior to the start of an infusion. Peak levels are drawn 30-60 minutes after the completion of an infusion. Typically drug levels are started after the fifth dose to allow adequate time for the drug to reach consistent blood levels. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Intravenous Fluids TPN/ PPN <ul><li>Total Parenteral Nutrition: TPN provides nutrients (carbohydrates, protein, fat, minerals, and trace elements) through the veins.
