Reference Interval

Therapeutic range approximately 1.5 - 4.0 umol/L for amiodarone.

 

Interpretation

Plasma desethylamiodarone concentrations are initially much lower than amiodarone, however they do approach those of amiodarone itself after approximately 5 days of therapy. After this time both concentrations remain approximately equivalent. Therefore comparisons of concentrations gives a good indication of compliance.
