Utilizing the EMIT system we have determined phenobarbital and diphenylbydantoin levels in 77 neonates with seizures. In addition, brain tissue was obtained for diphenylhydantoin and phenobarbital levels in ten neonates coming to autopsy.Following intravenous loading doses of 15-20mg/kg of phenobarbital, levels of 19.4 ± 3.4 mg/L were achieved. The volume(More)
