  1. 1. PHARMACOKINETICS IN SPECIAL POPULATIONS Presented by: P.C.Campo
  2. 3. MATERNAL ADAPTATIONS IN PREGNANCY Expanded intravascular volume Increased renal blood flow and GFR Increased progesterone activated hepatic metabolism Decreased gastrointestinal motility Increased thinning of fetomaternal barrier with advancing gestation Increased minute ventilation Decreased albumin
