Condition suspected infection with vancomycin susceptible bacterial strains
Sponsor Hospices Civils de Lyon
Start date October 2015
End date July 2016
Trial size 80 participants
Trial identifier NCT02844192, 69HCL16_0452


Vancomycin is frequently under-dosed in ICU patients during the first 24-48 hours of treatment. Glomerular hyperfiltration syndrome, increased drug volume of distribution, vasopressor use, male sex and hypoalbuminemia are identified risk factor for vancomycin underdosing in ICU patients, among others.

To date, bedside estimation of vancomycin volume of distribution is challenging, and new methods for optimizing drug administration are required.

The Picco device is a moderately invasive hemodynamic monitoring system, providing parameters that may help estimation of vancomycin pharmacokinetics parameter.

The aim of this study is to test whether addition of hemodynamic parameters would improve pharmacokinetics modelling of vancomycin concentration in ICU patients.
