Ring·er so·lu·tion

(ring'ĕr),
1. a solution resembling the blood serum in its salt constituents; it contains 8.6 g of NaCl, 0.3 g of KCl, and 0.33 g of CaCl2 in each 1000 mL of distilled water; used as a fluid and electrolyte replenisher by intravenous infusion.
2. a salt solution usually used in combination with naturally occurring body substances (for example, blood serum, tissue extracts) and more complex chemically defined nutritive solutions for culturing animal cells.
Synonym(s): Ringer lactate
See: Ringer injection.

After 1-2 min exposure to calciumfree Ringer solution, twitch was also abolished.
Because it has been demonstrated that eugenol blocks an L-type calcium channel (8), and because the increase in the resting tension was not blocked by calcium-free Ringer solution, it is unlikely that this effect was due to calcium inflow.
The experiments were carried out in normal Ringer solution. No significant differences in force were observed among groups (P.0.05, ANOVA followed by the t-test; n = 6).

The long-term behaviour of bare and anodized alloys was monitored by the measurements of the open circuit potentials--[E.sub.oc] (with a performing Hewlett-Packard multimeter) at regular time periods, till 1500 soaking hours in Ringer solutions. The shift of [E.sub.oc] to more positive values shows the increase of the thickness of oxide passive film and lower corrosion rate [23].
Electrochemical Behaviour of the Bare and Anodized Alloys in Ringer Solutions of Different pH Values.
In acid and alkaline Ringer solutions, the main electrochemical parameters presented slightly more unfavorable values both for the bare and the anodized alloys due to the slight higher aggressivity of these solutions; nevertheless, the anodized alloy revealed a very good passive behaviour.
Though, in acid and alkaline Ringer solutions, both the bare and the anodized alloys have a little higher corrosion rates, their values are placed in the "Perfect Stable" resistance class, indicating a very good anticorrosive resistance.

Data similar to that shown in Figure 1D were obtained from 6 horizontal cells, normalized to the current measured at [V.sub.c] -120 mV in control Ringer solution, and averaged (Fig.
