  • Formed from blood
  • Fluid that surrounds cells in tissues
  • Made of substances the leave blood plasma (oxygen,water,nutrients)
  • Cells takes in oxygen & nutrients from tissue fluid, release metabolic waste into it
  • In capillary bed substances move out of the capillaries by pressure filtration

At the start of the capillary bed (nearest arteries), hydrostatic pressure inside the capillaries is greater than the hydrostatic pressure in the tissue fluid. This difference forces fluid out of the capillaries and into the spaces around the cell, forming
