Brief Summary:

Vancomycin is frequently under-dosed in ICU patients during the first 24-48 hours of treatment. Glomerular hyperfiltration syndrome, increased drug volume of distribution, vasopressor use, male sex and hypoalbuminemia are identified risk factor for vancomycin underdosing in ICU patients, among others.

To date, bedside estimation of vancomycin volume of distribution is challenging, and new methods for optimizing drug administration are required.

The Picco device is a moderately invasive hemodynamic monitoring system, providing parameters that may help estimation of vancomycin pharmacokinetics parameter.

The aim of this study is to test whether addition of hemodynamic parameters would improve pharmacokinetics modelling of vancomycin concentration in ICU patients.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Akaike information criterion as a measurement of goodness of fit of pharmacokinetic modeling of vancomycin serum concentration [ Time Frame: week 1 ]

    All available vancomycin measurements during the first week of treatment will be included in the pharmacokinetics model.

    All vancomycin dosages up to seven days of treatment will be used in a population pharmacokinetic model and an individual pharmacokinetic model

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of patients with under-dosage of vancomycin at day 2 of treatment [ Time Frame: day 2 ]
    under-dosage of vancomycin is defined by a vancomycin serum concentration below 15 mg/l on day 2 of treatment.
