Feedback:
Laboratory tests of liver, kidney, and bone marrow function are often helpful because some drugs may damage these organs. Cardiac enzymes are assessed in the event that the patient has had myocardial infarction symptoms. The peak and trough indicates the amount of medication when half the medication has been excreted and the serum level of the medication prior to the administration of the next dose. The white blood cell count is indicative in the event of agranulocytosis or infection.
