For most databases, you will need to select all the citations you want to send and Export as an RIS file type. For Pubmed, you can click Send To: and choose Citation Manager (for batches of up to 200 articles) or File and then Medline format (for all the articles at once).
Once you have created your citation file, you can use the Add button in Mendeley to import the file.
