TAFUR B, Luis Alberto  and  FLOREZ, Eduardo Lema. Practical Application of Nomograms of Remifentanil and Propofol. Rev. colomb. anestesiol. [online]. 2009, vol.37, n.4, pp.311-319. ISSN 0120-3347.

Nomograms are tools that allow the administration of medicines pharmacokinetically. The value of these nomograms has already been published in the Colombian Journal of Anesthesiology (RCA), which requires a practical approximation in the way these concepts should be used- efficiently and with confidence. In the present article the utilization of the nomograms are presented didactically via examples which permit the reader to assess her or his grade of comprehension and dispel doubts about the application of the pharmacokinetic concepts for remifentanil and propofol.

Keywords : Nomograms; pharmacokinetics; practical examples; propofol; remifentanil; Source; MeSH; NLM.
