1. “Injection should not be used if it contains visible solid particle”.
This preparation is used in tetretment extracellular volume depletion, sodium depletion, dehydration, concentration, infused is 0.9% which is isotonic with plasm, 0.45% is infused in conjunction with dextrose. Hypertonic solution 3 – 5 % is used in emergency condition of Na-depletion, Kcl is infused in case of acute hypocalaemia, it is infused along with Nacl and dextrose, used as source of k+, kcl is highly irritant during administration case has to be taken for extra vasatation, ca-gluconate is less irritant used in such cond’n.
Ringer solution for intravenous Injection contains not less than 0.82% not no more than 0.89% w/v ; not less than 0.0285% and n.m.t.0.0315% w/v kcl and N.L.T. 0.03 % w/v of Ca++ N.M.T. 0.036% w/v of calcium chloride .2H2O it contains no. antimicrobial agents.

Label should state mill.eqivalent of ions per liter.
How to calculate milliequivalent of Ions in given
Eq. wt = At Wt or Mol Wt /Valancy of salt = 1000 milli eq. wt.
Milli equiventent ofions in salt is Equivalent weight of ions expressed in miligram.
Mol wt of Nacl — 58.5g.
Therefore 58.5 gm.Nacl = 23 gm. Na+
Therefore 8.6gm. Nacl = 3.338gm.
