The body surface area (BSA) is the measured surface of a human body. As it is less affected by abnormal adipose mass, BSA is found to be a better indicator of metabolic mass. It can be calculated using various formulas. This calculator calculates body surface area (BSA) based on the Mosteller formula with the given height and weight.
A person weighing 50 kgs and 160 cm tall will have body surface area as
= √((160 x 50) / 3600)
= 1.4907 m2
