Blood flow behaves differently at the microvascular level than they do at upper levels of circulating systems. The endothelial glycocalyx layer on the luminal surface of blood vessels plays a significant role in regulating blood flow and blood cell movement in microvascular networks. For instance, previous experimental studies showed that the endothelial glycocalyx layer causes additional resistance to blood flow in small blood vessels. One of the important facts of the endothelial glycocalyx… CONTINUE READING
