Patient database comparison

Antibiotic Kinetics© does not save patient data or keep a history of your pk consults. Antibiotic Kinetics© is a simplified pk dosage calculator only, it does not keep records.

Kinetics© and APK© each have an integrated patient database designed to keep a permanent patient history and record of consults. They differ somewhat in their database implementation.

APK© has two patient tables, active and inactive. Patients are discharged from the database when they are off service, but may be reactivated. Kinetics© patients are listed in a single data table.

Kinetics© saves serum level data for all consults, whereas APK© only saves serum levels from the most recent consult.

Both Kinetics© and APK© save a summary of each printed consult for reporting purposes.

Patient population

Kinetics© is targeted for adults only, the minimum age supported by Kinetics is 12 years.

Antibiotic Kinetics© and APK© support adults, peds and infants over 2kg.

None of our programs should be used in neonates.
