Why you need to care about the Glycocalyx Model paradigm.

Last weekend many hundreds of people read my last Post on FluidPhysiology about measuring the endothelial glycocalyx, thankyou so much. Starling physiology has grown to become a Controversy, thanks to the misinterpretations published by Professor Robert Hahn and his colleagues in the past year or so. These prompted Professor Charles Michel, Professor Roy Curry and…… Continue reading Why you need to care about the Glycocalyx Model paradigm.

Can we measure the endothelial glycocalyx?

This month we read an interesting experiment by Sweden’s Robert Hahn, an attempt to quantify the intravascular volume that is not the free-flowing plasma we sample by venesection or by drawing from an intravascular catheter. https://icm-experimental.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s40635-020-00317-z We have to thank Fitz-Roy Curry in California for much of our current knowledge about the structure and function of…… Continue reading Can we measure the endothelial glycocalyx?
