Lactated Ringers

What is it used for?

This is the basis for the mixture, and is an extra boost of hydration– a “step up” from normal saline that includes other electrolytes. In addition to sodium chloride, this rehydration solution also contains sodium lactate, potassium chloride, and calcium chloride dihydrate. It is more similar to your blood plasma than normal saline alone.
