Background: Vancomycin antimicrobial activity data shows time dependent activity, where the Area-Under-the-level-time- Curve (AUC) for 24 hours divided by the minimum inhibitory level (MIC) of 300-400 best predicts treatment outcomes. Calculating the AUC by the linear-trapezoidal formula is relatively difficult. An innovative approach for..
