Is it Lactated Ringers or lactated ringers?
Yes, I have to agree w/ MT50. I also have always typed Ringer's... but there is that rule on eponyms. Still, it sounds strange, to me anyway.
That is correct; however, it is most always dictated "lactated Ringer's" and that is also correct. In this case, it would be Ringer's (possessive)... Hope this helps also.

It is found both ways in several different reference books. In the new Stedman's Abbreviation book it's fabere. The old Stedman's Abbreviation book listed it both ways, FABERE and fabere. It is an acronym, however, and the BOS 2nd edition page 7 says, "Capitalize all letters of most acronyms." It then also goes on to say, "When acronyms become words in their own right, they sometimes evolve into lowercase form." Such as the lower-case acronym laser (light amplification by stimulation emission of radiation). Is it possible that fabere has evolved into a word of its own? I don't think so, because if it was a word of its own it wouldn't be in the abbreviation book! So, I would follow the BOS recommendation and capitalize the letters of an acronym. FABERE
