This is the third in a series of articles on the basics of pharmacology, drug action and pharmacokinetics, in which interactive explanations are used to illustrate the first two of the four basic pharmacokinetic processes, namely absorption and distribution (i.e. the 'A' and 'D' of the "ADME" processes). This series uses excerpts and diagrams with permission from the 2nd edition of Pharmacology in Clinical Practice: Application Made Easy for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals, and is compiled and expanded upon by the author.
