Tissue Fluid Formation

Capillary blood pressure causes filtration of water and small molecules from the plasma. The resulting fluid has much the same composition as the blood plasma (including nutrients, gases, and hormones), with the important exception of the plasma proteins, which are generally too large to pass through the capillary walls. The osmotic effect of these (called the plasma colloid osmotic pressure) helps to draw fluid back into the capillaries by osmosis.
