To understand the effect of protein and tissue binding on volume of drug distribution.
The volume of distribution (VD) , also known as apparent volume of distribution, is a pharmacological term used to quantify the distribution of a medication between plasma and the rest of the body after oral or parenteral dosing.
It is defined as the volume in which the amount of drug would need to be uniformly distributed to produce the observed blood concentration.
The volume of distribution is a hypothetical volume of fluid into which a drug is distributed, it’s a useful in predicting amount of drug in the body.
