While reviewing a drug manufacturer’s package insert, the
nurse reads about the dose–response curve. The purpose of the dose–response
curve is to illustrate the relationship between:

1. The amount of a drug administered and the degree of
response it produces. 2. The prevalence of toxic effects in a given population.
3. The degree of response and the total duration of action of the drug. 4. The
peak serum drug level when half the dose is administered.
