Sodium Chloride(600 mg)


Sodium chloride is used as a source of electrolytes (minerals in body fluids) and water to prevent dehydration (when loss of water exceeds water intake) and replenish the loss of sodium from body fluids in conditions like metabolic alkalosis (acid-base imbalance in body fluids that can cause serious complications) or diarrhea. It is also used as a solvent for reconstitution of medications or diluting agent for administration of medications intravenously.

How it works

Sodium chloride belongs to the class of medications called electrolytes or osmotic agents. It works by controlling fluid and electrolyte balance and increases water retention (by regulating osmotic pressure), thereby increasing water content in the body. It also plays an important role in maintenance of acid-base balance of body fluids. 

Common side effects

Application site redness of skin, Application site irritation, Increased sodium level in blood, Decreased sodium level in blood, Injection-site reactions, Injection site swelling, Chills, Fever
Sodium Lactate(320 mg)


Sodium lactate is used for balancing water, electrolytes, and calories in the body or as an alkalinizing agent to manage disorders associated with low pH

How it works

Sodium lactate belongs to a class of drugs called minerals, electrolytes and urinary pH modifiers. Sodium lactate is slowly broken down to carbon dioxide and water thereby maintaining the fluid balance in the body. 

Common side effects

Pain, Swelling, Panic attacks, Injection site reaction, Discharge, Hypersensitivity reaction, Fluid overload, Infusion site reaction, Infusion site pain, Nasal congestion, Sneezing
Potassium Chloride(40 mg)


Potassium chloride is used to treat or prevent hypokalemia (low blood levels of potassium) and electrolyte imbalance that may result from a disease, certain medicines such as water pills (diuretics), or prolonged illness with diarrhea or vomiting.

How it works

Potassium chloride is a mineral (electrolyte) and provides potassium for body. It is important for the nerve conduction, muscle contraction, kidney function, beating of heart and many other normal body functions.

Common side effects

Nausea, Numbness, Tingling sensation, Allergic reaction, Cardiac toxicity, Chest pain, Anxiety, Confusion, Diarrhoea, Altered heart rate, Black and bloody stools, Muscle weakness, Muscle paralysiss, Stomach pain, Stomach swelling, Vomiting, Weakness
Calcium Chloride(27 mg)


It is used for the treatment of patients with cardiac arrest (particularly due to increased pottasium or low calcium) and to treat acute defeciency of calcium.

How it works

It promotes calcium absorption in the intestines and retention at the kidneys thus increasing serum calcium levels. It also increases renal tubule phosphate resorption consequently decreasing serum phosphatase levels, PTH levels and bone resorption.

Common side effects

Skin redness, Increased calcium level in blood, Decreased magnesium level in blood, Decreased phosphate level in blood, Decreased blood pressure, Tissue necrosis, Dry mouth, Nausea

Expert advice for RINGER LACTATE (PDPL)

  • Your electrolyte levels in blood and other parameters (such as blood pressure etc.) will be monitored regularly as you receive intravenous sodium chloride.
  • Tell your doctor if you have disorders of the kidneys, lungs, problems of the heart related to impaired pumping of blood (congestive cardiac disorders), high blood pressure or pregnancy-related blood pressure problems (pre-eclampsia), fluid retention problems  or swelling in hands, ankles or feet.
  • Seek immediate medical attention if you experience any unwanted swelling, trouble in breathing, muscle cramps, and/or weakness, fits, nausea, vomiting or stomach pain.
  • Tell your doctor if you are or planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
  • Do not take if you are allergic to sodium chloride or any of its ingredients.
  • Do not give to patients with excess fluid or sodium in the space outside body cells (extracellular hyper hydration or hypervolemia).
  • Do not give to patients with abnormally low levels of sodium or chloride in blood (hyponatremia, hypochloremia), fluid and sodium retention problems or edema (swelling).
  • Do not give to patients with congestive heart failure (heart failure resulting in fluid build-up in lungs and other body tissues), severe liver and kidney functioning problems.
