Abstract/OtherAbstract:
1 Twenty-two dialysis dependent patients received an intravenous loading dose of digoxin of 10 microgram/kg and the mean +/- s.d. serum digoxin concentration 24 h later was 1.5 ng/ml +/- 0.4 (range 0.8--2.1 ng/ml). No evidence of toxicity was observed. 2 The average apparent volume of distribution of digoxin in dialysis dependent patients was found to be reduced by about one third compared with that reported for individuals with normal renal function, but there was great variation. 3 An appropriate intravenous loading dose of digoxin in most patients with advanced renal failure is 10 microgram/kg.
