If you want to clear a drug, it is probably best that it not be bound to proteins (so that it gets filtered) and it has a low volume of distribution (so it isn't in the deep, hard to reach tissues).

kingtime9119  But that doesn't make sense. Page 233 of First Aid 2019 edition clearly states that being plasma protein bound creates the lowest volume of distribution, because not being bound to proteins increases the chance it will reach deep into the tissues before it reaches the kidneys. Discrepancy with First Aid? +  
haliburton  my reasoning was comparing two drugs, both with Vd of 1, the drug with the lower albumin binding would be cleared faster @kingtime. I don't think you're considering that A and B have equal Vd. +
