Infant Drug Metabolism Q,

  1. Hi guys,
    I have a nursing school q, but thought asking the experts was better than fellow students.
    For infants you give lowered doses because of decreased albumin in infants blood (of this I'm sure) but do you also routinely monitor the infant for both therapeutic effects & adverse effects. seems like a no-brainer to me that you would monitor, but I'm afraid this is a trick question (it's one of those a, a&b, etc type questions, Ugh )
    Thanks in advance

    Yes, definitely monitor for therapeutic & adverse effects... as you would on any patient I hate those trick questions that make you try to overthink things!
