Body FluidsBody Water ContentTotal body water is a function of age, body mass, and body fat.Due to their low body fat and bone mass, infants are about 73% water.The body water content of men is about 60%, but since women have relatively more body fat and less skeletal muscle than men, theirs is about 50%.Body water declines throughout life, ultimately comprising about 45% of total body mass in old age.Fluid CompartmentsThere are two main fluid compartments of the body: the intracellular compartment contains slightly less than two-thirds by volume; the remaining third is distributed in the extracellular fluid.There are two subcompartments of the extracellular fluid: blood plasma and interstitial fluid.
