Because you need to take into account several factor, including the speed with which a drug may affect those of certain ages, the effectiveness of absorption or use, and the physiological differences between groups. If you are giving a dosage of a certain medication intravenously that would normally be balanced out in a normal adult if you inject it intravenously, you' d need to use a faster route for geriatrics like IV or IO (Intravenous or Intraosteo), shale you might need a slower route like ingestion for pediatrics.

The correct answer is option - 1. If passage through the placenta is adversely affected by fetal disease. and 4. If rapid drug effects are required.

Explanation:

Normally the drug that is provided and administrated to the fetal is through the placenta of the mother. The direct delivery of medicine can be dangerous. However, with the advancement of the medical technology direct fetal drug administration is possible and it assists in the rapid uptake of the drug by the fetus.

If the fetus requires a rapid drug effect it can be provided by direct drug delivery. Also when the placental is not working properly and affected by the disease it is recommended to provide the fetus with the drug with the help of direct delivery.

Thus, the correct answer is : 1. If passage through the placenta is adversely affected by fetal disease. and 4. If rapid drug effects are required.

Intravenous injection (IV)

Explanation:

 Injectable medication administration should be performed efficiently, safely and responsibly, in order to achieve the goals of the implemented therapy. Most drugs can be administered by a variety of routes. The choice of the appropriate route in a given situation depends on both the drug and patient-related factors.

   Intravenous (IV): should be administered slowly for several hours into one of the superficial veins and with monitoring of the patient's reactions. The drug reaches the bloodstream directly and the effects are produced immediately. Once a drug is injected, there is no way to withdraw it. It is the most dangerous route and vital organs such as the heart, brain, etc., are exposed to high concentrations of the drug.

The oralroute of administration is the most widely used route and most acceptable for the patient. The oral route should always be the first considered route and alternatives to this route only sought if specific problems prevent this route being utilised. These include:

emesis because of irritation of the gastrointestinal mucosa by the drug; destruction by digestive enzymes or acidic gastric fluid; irregularities in absorption in the presence of food or other drugs; drugs may be metabolised by enzymes or bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract before systemic absorption can occur; absorption of opioids may be reduced by the delay in gastric emptying that follows surgery. This has the dual disadvantage of non-absorption initially, followed by the possibility of a large dose being absorbed when gastrointestinal function resumes.

Answer : The route of drug administration is dependent on the patient's age because the drug response in body is found to be different for different age group of people.

A child may feel difficult to swallow big pills as they would not like the taste of the drug or the size of pill may get stuck in the esophagus tube. So, alternatives can be adopted for children's like injections, inhalations, etc.

For elderly people the digestive system acts slow; they must be given certain drugs which can directly reach the affected area and start its action.

Same way, Pregnant women can be at risk of harming the foetus if there is some overdose or a harmful drug is taken. Intravenous route can be beneficial for these group.

In my perspective, the drug administration are dependent on the people depending on their ages because it varies on the effects of the drugs used on them. For example, a child usually has a hard time swallowing pills when they drink their medicine, it is one of those factors that leads us to alternatives. And it is the same for pregnant women and the elderly that have different effects on them.
