Saline Solution 0.9% w/v in 100 cc/ml bottle
Explanation:
Sounds like Suero Fisiológico (saline solution).
Normal saline is a solution of 0.9% w/v of NaCl (this nomenclature is confusing - "normal sodium chloride" to a chemist means a concentration of 5.85% w/v, also expressed as 1N NaCl(aq) ). It contains 154 mEq/L of Na+ and Cl−. It has a slightly higher degree of osmolality (i.e. more solute per liter) compared to blood (hence, though it is referred to as being isotonic with blood in clinical contexts, this is a technical inaccuracy), about 300 mOsm/L. Normal saline (NS) is therefore used frequently in intravenous drips (IVs) for patients who cannot take fluids orally and have developed severe dehydration. Normal saline is typically the first fluid used when dehydration is severe enough to threaten the adequacy of blood circulation and is the safest fluid to give quickly in large volumes
