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 solution

(-ər)
n.
An aqueous solution of the chlorides of sodium, potassium, and calcium that is isotonic to animal tissue and is used topically as a physiological saline and, in experiments, to bathe animal tissues.

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).

Based on a modified multi-chemical analysis we can conclude about the physical and chemical stability in interaction of basalt scales powders and composite systems "hydroxyapatite--basalt scales" with the blood plasma and Ringer's solution and Ringer-Locke solution, that imitate the fluid of a living body.

In other words, resuscitation with Ringer's solution played a crucial role in treating septic shock and alleviating tissue perfusion.
In this study, parturients were preloaded with 500ml of lactated Ringer's solution over a period of 30 minutes and thereafter fluid infusion was maintained at the rate of 2-3ml/kg per hour.
Although the protocol using PEG 3350 balanced solution (PEG) alone did not alter any of the studied variables, the combination with lactate Ringer's solution (PEG+RL) induced minor changes like decreases of cHC[O.sup.-.sub.3] in T12h, compared to T24h, and of BE in T6h and T12h, compared to T24h.
The popular method of getting signals to hop over that gap right now uses a solution of salts called Ringer's solution that mimics body fluids.
It will show how the research led to therapeutic trials on convict patients in the hulks at Chatham and Woolwich, and how the successes and failures of this work marked an important contribution to the future discovery of the ingredients of Ringer's solution; the ingredients of the 'saline drip' (which is still used in the present day to treat cholera and other conditions that require intravenous hydration).
It was shown to be passive in simulated physiological solutions, such as Ringer's solution [4,10,12,16], Hank solutions [8,13-15], artificial saliva [9], and phosphate-buffered saline solution (PBS) [5-7], but active in hydrochloric acid solutions [4].
