Lactated Ringer's is a sterile, nonpyrogenic solution containing isotonic concentrations of electrolytes in water for injection. Lactated Ringer's is administered by intravenous infusion for parenteral replacement of extracellular losses of fluid and electrolytes. Each 100 mL of Lactated Ringer's Injection, USP contains sodium chloride 600 mg, sodium lactate, anhydrous 310 mg, potassium chloride 30 mg and calcium chloride, dihydrate 20 mg. May contain hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide for pH adjustment. A liter provides 9 calories (from lactate), sodium (Na+), 130 mEq, potassium (K+) 4 mEq, calcium (Ca-++) 3 mEq, chloride (Cl-) 109 mEq and lactate [CH3CH(OH) COO-] 28 mEq. The electrolyte content is isotonic (273 mOsmol/liter, calc.) in relation to the extracellular fluid (approx. 280 mOsmol/liter). The pH of the solution is 6.6 (6.0-7.5). The solution contains no bacteriostat, antimicrobial agent or added buffer (except for pH adjustment) and each is intended only for use as a single-dose injection. When smaller doses are required the unused portion should be discarded.ctated Ringer's is a sterile, nonpyrogenic solution containing isotonic concentrations of electrolytes in water for injection.

According to the information on the drug itself, 10mEq of potassium citrate = 1080mg, therefore 60 mEq would be 6 times this, or 6480 mg. that's a lot of potassium!

i believe 10 meqs of potassium is equal to 390 mg's of potassium, therefore, one meq, is equal to 39 mg's potassiumNot sure where you get your answer but according to drugs.com 10meg is equal to 750 mg of potassium20mEq of potassium chloride is 781.960 mg of elemental potassium [K], and 709.060 mg of elemental chlorine [Cl] (which is 1491.0 mg of potassium chloride [KCl]). Here's how to figure it:_________________mg = (mEq • atomic, molecular or formula weight) / valenceAtomic weight of potassium [K] is 39.0983Atomic weight of chlorine [Cl] is 35.453The molecular weight of potassium chloride [KCl] is sum of the atomic weights above: 74.551 (rounded)The valence of potassium chloride is 1Thus:(20mEq potassium chloride • 74.551) / 1 = 1491.0 mg potassium chlorideWhich breaks down to 781.960 mg of elemental potassium [K], and 709.060 mg of elemental chlorine [Cl]._________________
