There are two main fluid compartments in the body. About two-third is in the intracellular fluid compartment (ICF). The intracellular fluid is the fluid within the cells of the body. The remaining one-third of body water is outside cells, in the extracellular fluid compartment.

The intracellular fluid of the cytosol or intracellular fluid (or cytoplasmic matrix) is the liquid found inside cells. The cytosol is a complex mixture of substances that include proteins, ions, and organelles dissolved in water. Extracellular fluid (ECF) or extracellular fluid volume (ECFV) usually denotes all body fluid outside of cells, and consists of plasma, interstitial, and transcellular fluid. An extracellular matrix is an extracellular fluid space containing cell-excreted molecules, and they vary in their type and function.
