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.

Ringer's solution

A solution in water of sodium chloride, potassium chloride and calcium chloride of such concentration as to be ISOTONIC to blood and tissue. Ringer's solution is used for local (topical) applications. (Sydney Ringer, 1835–1910, British physiologist).
