When administering aminoglycoside antibiotics (AMGs), it is widely known that an individualized dosage regimen based on both measured serum concentrations and patient-specific pharmacokinetic parameters is essential to achieve desirable serum concentrations. The dosage regimen with AMG based on clinical pharmacokinetics, however, required a number of steps which involve a complicated set of calculations. We thus developed an AMG consultation support program for the purpose of applying it to

The program comprises three separate methods: the Sawchuk-Zaske dosing method, modified Sawchuk-Zaske dosing method and Dettli method. This enables a user to select one of them according to the routine clinical situation at hand. We believe that the system offers substantial support for effective and safe treatment of AMGs.
