In phlebotomy a trough therapeutic drug level is drawn after how long?
Blood specimens for drug monitoring can be taken at two different times, called peak and trough levels. Blood for peak level is collected at the drug's highest therapeutic concentration within the dosing period. For drugs given intravenously, the peak level is drawn 30 minutes after completion of the dose. For drugs given orally, this time varies with the drug because it is dependent upon the rates of absorption, distribution and elimination. For intravenous drugs, peak levels can be measured immediately following complete infusion. Trough levels (occasionally called residual levels) are measured just prior to administration of the next dose, and are the lowest concentration in the dosing interval. Too low a dose or too great a dose interval will produce a trough level that is below the therapeutic range, and too great a dose or too close a dose interval will show a peak level greater than the therapeutic range. Most therapeutic drugs have a narrow trough to peak difference, and therefore, only trough levels are needed to detect blood levels that are too low or too high. Peak levels are needed for some drugs, especially aminoglycoside antibiotics.

What does peak power and continuous nominal power handling in car speakers?
Peak power is the highest rated output of the speaker when loud (or peak) parts hit. Continuous/nominal power is the average output at normal and continuous listening levels. If you have the Peak Power rating, you can figure out the nominal level by multiplying the peak power by the square root of two (0.707). Peak Power * 0.707 = Nominal Power.

When to draw serum trough and serum peak drug levels?
Trough levels should be drawn immediately prior to a dose and should not be drawn before steady state conditions are acheived. Peak levels should be drawn at least 60 minutes after the end of the infusion. If it is administered via a peripheral site, the serum level should be drawn from the opposite extermity. and the IV should be flushed.

What is peak and trough as it relates to medicine?
A Peak and Trough is a lab test to determine the levels of medication in the blood, and if they are in the therapeutic range. A peak, drawn shortly after the medication has infused, will tell how much is being used. A trough, drawn shortly before the medication is administered, will tell how much medication is left from the last dose.
