Saline or Hartmann's solution: is it still a controversy?
Anaesthetists and other clinicians have long debated the relative merits of using Hartmann’s (or lactated Ringer’s) solution instead of normal saline during operations. Until recently there have only been case reports that have highlighted the possibility of a ‘dilutional acidosis’ occurring when saline was used to replace massive blood loss.

Abstract

Anaesthetists and other clinicians have long debated the relative merits of using Hartmann’s (or lactated Ringer’s) solution instead of normal saline during operations. Until recently there have only been case reports that have highlighted the possibility of a ‘dilutional acidosis’ occurring when saline was used to replace massive blood loss.
