Measurement of parameters of energy requirement, respiratory quotient (RQ), rate of oxygen consumption (VO2) and rate of carbon dioxide production (VCO2) reveal Ringerfundin as an excellent and metabolically stable-acting balanced ionic solution, which does not increase the consumption of O2 or the total energy requirement. In conclusion, Ringerfundin was very well tolerated and in no case were observed undesirable effects.
