Writes an original jingle, short story, about Vancomycin.
Keep in mind you will need to share your work with your peers so the format has to be something that can be shared via Canvas, a handout or a link.
Keep in mind:
1. Your summary should be short – no more than 5-7 minutes.
2. It should have information in your own words about each of the bulleted items listed below:
The pharmaceutical classification/category
An example of a specific medication in this category (prototype medication – generic names only)
The medication category intended use (s)
The medication mechanism of action
Side effects/Adverse effects
Use in special populations (elderly, children, pregnant women, those with comorbidities, etc.)
3. You need to include a reference page (APA format) as a separate submission. You must use a minimum of three resources (textbook, a reputable internet site-(avoid .com) & a nursing journal article regarding the specific pharmaceutical agent or the pharmaceutical agent’s classification)
The pharmaceutical classification/category: antimicrobial
An example of a specific medication in this category (prototype medication – generic names only):
The medication category intended use (s) narrow spectrum so its is for specific infection ex. MRSA, C.diff Bone/joint infections (also used if severe allergy to Penicillin.
Pharmacokinetics- movement of drugs within our body
1) Absorption: After Vancomycin is administered, it moves into the bloodstream.
Administer through IV or oral
2) Distribution: After the process of absorption, Vancomycin starts distributing to the target cells and specific target molecule within.
Distribute into pleural, pericardial, ascitic and bile,
3 ) Metabolism: This is when the Vancomycin has been modified by enzymes and starts rendering it ineffective.
4 ) Excretion final stage: Go through urine or feces,
The medication of mechanism of action
Vancomycin Inhibit cell wall synthesis Vancomycin inhibits cell wall biosynthesis by targeting the d-Ala -d-Ala terminus of peptidoglycan. Which are highly cross-linked heptapeptide aglycon structure of vancomycin is the d-Ala-d-Ala binding site.
NARROW THERAPEUTIC RANGE (peaks and troughs, mention)
Side effects/Adverse effects
Side: thrombophlebitis at IV site, Hypotension
Adverse: Anaphylaxis, ototoxicity, tissue necrosis, renal failure, RED MAN SYNDROME,
Use in special populations -take care with the elderly, not for use in people with severe renal impairment
Hearing impairment (EVALUATE HEARING)
Concurrent nephrotoxic agent
Concurrent ototoxic agent
Rapid infusion can cause “red man syndrome”
Flushing, rash, pruritus, urticarial, tachycardia, and hypotension
Narrow therapeutic range
Monitor the body closely by doing blood draws (peak: 30-60 min. after)
Nurses have to consider hearing impairment, elderly, renal impairment, and more. Here’s what we can’t forget, when caring for our patients, we need to monitor the patient’s body closely after doing blood draws. We have to make sure to infuse our patient slowly so it doesn’t cause “red man syndrome.” This syndrome causes redness, flushing, rash, and hypotension within the human body.
