The gatekeeper of the capillary wall is the humble endothelial glycocalyx layer (EGL). This delicate yet mighty lining is an integral part of the vascular barrier, controlling many functions that allow vascular homeostasis to be maintained. Without a healthy glycocalyx, our patients would have significant consequences with potentially very poor outcomes.
With a greater understanding of how we can use appropriate IV fluid therapy to prevent its degradation and even restore its function, we can hopefully avoid serious complications and improve patient outcomes.
