  223. Arterial pressure is higher than the pressure on the venous side of the capillaries. Thus, hydrostatic pressure tends to drive fluids out of the blood and into the tissues on the arterial side and back out of the tissues on the venous side.
  224. Osmotic pressure is greater in the plasma than in the interstitial fluid, because plasma has a much higher protein concentration; thus, osmotic pressure tends to draw fluid into the blood, out of the tissue
