Interstitial Fluid Pressure in Control of Interstitial Fluid Volume During Normal Conditions, Injury and Inflammation
The interstitial space is the intercellular and extravascular compartment which is present in all tissues and which comprise from a few percent of the total tissue weight in brain to forty percent of the tissue weight in skin (Aukland & Nicolaysen 1981). The fluid contained in this compartment is an ultrafiltrate of plasma and contains proteins and electrolytes.
