Glycocalyx Studies Bring Precision Medicine to Critical Care
Massachusetts General Hospital physician-scientists are investigating ways to personalize medicine in the ICU, including research around alveolar epithelial glycocalyx function.
Damage to the Alveolar Epithelial Glycocalyx Contributes to Lung Injury in ARDS
Alicia N. Rizzo, MD, PhD, Eric P. Schmidt, MD, and colleagues demonstrate alveolar epithelial glycocalyx integrity is critical to surfactant function, link shedding of this layer to the severity and duration of acute respiratory distress syndrome, and propose a rapid bedside assay that provides prognostic information.
Prolonged Prone Ventilation Decreases COVID-19 Mortality
Research at Massachusetts General Hospital demonstrates that prolonged prone positioning during mechanical ventilation decreases COVID-19-related mortality.
