    I am doing a presetation for a critical care rotation on the use of inhaled heparin in treatment of inhalation injuries. I wanted to compare the PK parameters between IV heparin and inhaled heparin, only I can't find any details about inhaled heparin PK!! I have searched high and low, so now I come to you all for help! Any insight would be really appreciated! Thanks!

    Maybe you could call the manufacturer and get them to send you some data.

    Where are you searching? Have you tried doing a PUBMED search?

    Pubmed has a lot of journal articles related to research, many of them medically based.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed

    It is very useful for doing lots of types of research.

    Your school should have an account with Pubmed, otherwise you would have to pay for access to a lot of the articles. It's best to log in through your school.

    Yes, I tried PubMed, and several other resources including good old google. The only thing that I came up with for PK is that it seems to be dose dependent, basically based on how well/how much the patient breathes in. PubMed has several studies, but none report PK parameters... :-(

    If anyone has any other tips, please let me know!!!

    You could try checking at International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis usually have abstracts regarding fairly new drugs etc. I also got some abstracts regarding apixban there too.
