Abstract

When reporting individual drug concentrations or proper pharmacokinetic data, it is important to adequately report the circumstances associated with sampling, storing, analysis methodology and pharmacokinetic modelling. If this is not done in sufficient detail it will be impossible to properly evaluate the validity of the results. The present text represents a suggested approach on what to report when you are contemplating to submit a manuscript to regional anesthesia and pain medicine, this to achieve relevant standards in this context.
