Ringer's solution

 [ring´erz]
a sterile solution of sodium chloride, potassium chloride, and calcium chloride in purified water, used as a fluid and electrolyte replenisher and an irrigating physiologic salt solution. A preparation for injection is known as Ringer's injection, and one for irrigation as Ringer's irrigation. Lactated Ringer's solution includes the above compounds plus sodium lactate.
