Body Surface Area
Formula
BSA(m2) =
Dubois and Dubois : = 0.20247 x height (m) 0.725 x weight (kg) 0.425
Haycock : = 0.024265 x height (cm) 0.3964 x weight (kg) 0.5378
Gehan & George : = 0.0235 x height (cm) 0.42246 x weight (kg) 0.51456
Boyd : = 0.0003207 x height (cm) 0.3 x weight (g) 0.7285 - (0.0188 x log(weight(g)))
Mosteller: = square root ( (height (cm) x weight (kg))/ 3600)
 
How to calculate a BSA.
 
Step 1: Obtain the weight and height of the patient. Enter the weight and height along with the unit values for the weight and height.  The formula listed above is used to calculate the Body Surface Area (BSA).
 
Check Normal Values by BSA
