Two premature infants received 10-fold overdoses of vancomycin with resulting peak plasma concentrations > 300 microg/mL. Discontinuation of vancomycin and watchful waiting were employed, with no specific intervention to accelerate vancomycin clearance. Plasma vancomycin concentration < 40 microg/mL was attained at < 48 hours in one infant and < 72 hours in(More)
