Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

To start with hydrostatic pressure, this force put forth by a fluid against a certain wall that causes movement of fluid amid compartments. It is true that the hydrostatic pressure of blood is actually the pressure that is exerted by blood over the walls of the vessels of blood by the pumping accomplishment of the heart. Over capillaries, hydrostatic pressure  is upper compared to the opposing “colloid osmotic pressure” over blood—a “constant” pressure mainly produced by the circulating albumin at the arteriolar ending of the known capillary . In this case, this pressure actually forces plasma as well as nutrients out the capillaries and also into any surrounding tissues. Fluid as well as the cellular wastes over the tissues then enters the capillaries at the venule end, and this is where the hydrostatic pressure is fewer than the osmotic pressure over the vessel.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
