Elimination Kinetics of Ethanol in a 5-Week-Old Infant and a Literature Review of Infant Ethanol Pharmacokinetics
Blood ethanol concentration (mg/dL) versus time (hr : min). (—) represents actual measure concentrations of ethanol and their corresponding times. () represents an extrapolated line measured from the previous 2 points to show that if the infant had continued linear elimination, he would have completely eliminated the ethanol at 12 hours and 45 minutes. (- - -) represents a linear trendline applied to the actual measured ethanol concentrations and their corresponding times to suggest linear, or zero-order, elimination kinetics with a coefficient of determination .
