    Hi

    I found this sentence and I don't know what a ringer is. I've looked in several dictionaries, but nothing. Could anyone help me?

    "Give her a liter of lactate and ringers and get her to the CT!"
    (Is a dialogue that takes place in a hospital)

    Thank you in advance.

    Sorry, I just found it, it's not ringers (as it's written in the dialogue), but Ringer's (solution).

    Exacto, es una solución salina, y en español se maneja como Ringer's lactado o lactado Ringer.

    Hi,
    The dialogue should be wrong. Lactate and ringers does not seem to be OK, is lactated ringer's solution
    in Spanish is translated as ringer lactato (at least in Spain is lactato not lactado, which means a different thing!)
    Seems to be a dialogue at House's series
     
  5. Es simplemente la solución de Ringer o Ringer-lactato, un expansor del plasma que está conformada por solución salina al 0,9 % y otros agregados como calcio.
