Are IV fluids hypertonic, hypotonic, isotonic?

The tonicity depends on what fluids are being used in the IV. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "IV fluids hypertonic hypotonic isotonic" to get these possible sources:

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
