DUI Science: Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics
Defending a DUI (now called OVI in Ohio) requires an attorney to understand how the body reacts to the impairing substance (pharmacokinetics) and how the brain is affected by the substance (pharmacodynamics). Pharmacokinetics explains the absorption, distribution and elimination of the drug. Pharmacodynamics includes the action of the drug on the brain, pharmacologic effects and toxicity. [Holford, N., Chapter 3: Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics: Rational Dosing and the Time Course of Drug Action, in B. Katzung, Editor, McGraw Hill, Eighth Edition, 2001, p. 36]. Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics are explained in this short introductory video.
