8th ed of ATLS -? Lactated Ringer?

I thought there was good evidence that using LR for volume was
contraindicated in shock and that IF any crystalloid was to be used, it
should be isotonic or hypertonic saline.  I see ATLS still includes LR as an
acceptable isotonic crystalloid.  As I just got through recommending that we
remove LR from our supplies, I would appreciate being educated.
