Hi all, 
I am an RGN working in an Intensive Care Unit in England.

My problem is that we are occasionally asked to take blood assays to
ascertain the therapeutic levels of Vancomycin, Phenytoin, Gentamycin
and Digoxin. However there is some confusion as to when bloods should
be drawn for these investigations.

I would be most grateful for any input you may be able to give me.

Thank You.
