- What substances produce “colloid osmotic pressure”?
- The clotting factors in blood
- The protein component of blood
- The cellular component of blood
- The serum component of blood
The correct answer is: the protein component of blood.
Explanation: Colloid osmotic pressure, also known as oncotic pressure, is the pressure exerted by proteins, particularly albumin, in the blood vessels. This pressure is essential for maintaining the balance of fluids between the blood vessels and tissues. Albumin and other proteins in the blood are too large to pass through the walls of the blood vessels, so they remain in the vessels and create a force that pulls fluids back into the vessels. This helps prevent the accumulation of excess fluid in the tissues and is critical for maintaining normal blood volume and pressure. Therefore, the protein component of blood is responsible for producing colloid osmotic pressure.
