However, the most important concept that this figure demonstrates is that the eventual steady state level is determined only by the maintenance dose, regardless of the size of the loading dose. Selection of an inappropriately high digitalizing dose only subjects patients to an interval of added risk without achieving a permanent increase in the extent of digitalization. Conversely, when a high digitalizing dose is required to help control ventricular rate in patients with atrial fibrillation or flutter, a higher than usual maintenance dose also will be required.

In other words, the Laplace operation transforms the differential equation from the time domain to another functional domain represented by the subsidiary equation. After algebraic simplification of this subsidiary equation, the inverse transformation is used to return the solved equation to the time domain. We have selected a simple example to illustrate the use of Laplace transform methods. A more advanced application is given in the next chapter, in which equations are derived for a two-compartment model.
