Click this tab or use the Keyboard shortcut Alt+G to perform prospective dosing based on a population model or a dosing table, depending on the model type.

 

Data entry fields have a white background, calculated fields which cannot be edited have a grey or yellow background.

 

Calculate ideal dose

If the model supports it, the program calculates an "ideal" dose and interval based on the population model and the target parameters the user selects, otherwise, it displays a dosing table.

 

Enter dose

The user then enters a practical dose and interval.  If the model supports it, the program then calculates projected serum levels.  At this point, pressing the tab key will loop between the dose and interval inputs so that user may enter and view the outcome of different dosing regimens, allowing one to find the best dose for the patient.
