Q: What is the optimum way of drawing Vancomycin trough level?


Usually Vancomycin peak is not required, and Vancomycin trough is recommended.

Vancomycin trough should be drawn when steady state is achieved, ideally less than 30 minutes before fourth dose.

1 ml of blood is sufficient for draw in vacutainer red top.
