Why do we give 1/2 dose (150) inhaled tobramycin, twice a day? Could 36lb kids get a full dose once daily to same effect? (trach w colonized pseudom)

Why do we give 1/2 dose (150) inhaled tobramycin, twice a day? Could 36lb kids get a full dose once daily to same effect? (trach w colonized pseudom)

If you were to only dose the tobramycin once a day, it will be too low to work in ~12-16 hrs; by using it twice a day, you keep it in your system & it works much better. ...Read more
