Sterile Saline Shortage for Irrigation of Osteotomy: Ideas?

Last Updated December 11, 2017

I™m interested to know what others are doing in response to the shortage of sterile saline bags for irrigation during drilling of the osteotomy. It seems that sterile saline in bags has become impossible to find. We found some sterile saline in bottles which can be syringed onto the osteotomy by the assistant. I thought about using sterile water or Lactated Ringers, but I™m unsure whether this is a good idea. The internet is surprisingly lacking information on the subject. Any other ideas?
