What is the glycocalyx?
Why is it important?
How do fluids really move? Do not say, “Starling blah blah blah oncotic pressure yada yada yada.
Glyco: word-forming element meaning “sweet,” from Latinized combining form of Greek glykys, glykeros “sweet”; e.g., glycerin, glycemia, glycogen, glycolysis. Glycolic acid is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid that is derived from sugar cane.
Calyx: Latin calyx, from Greek kalyx “seed pod, husk, outer covering”. The renal calyx covers the renal pyramids. The glycocalyx covers the endothelium.
