Body water constitutes approximately 50 to 56% of total body weight in adult women. 60% in adult men and 77% in newborn infants. Total body water is distributed between two compartments, the intracellular fluid compartment and the extracellular fluid compartment. Most body water is intracellular accounting for 55-75% of total body weight. The remains 25-45% of total body weight is distributed in the extracellular fluid compartment.
