The body surface area (BSA) is the measured surface of a human body. It is considered as a better measure of metabolic mass. It can be calculated using various different formulas. However, the result from each formula varies slightly. We can calculate the BSA using the below simple online calculator, which uses the Dubois Formula using the given height and weight.
Followed by Dubois, Gehan and George, Haycock, Boyd and Mosteller derived various other different formulas to find the body surface area.
When height is 1.78m and weight is 72kg what will be the body surface area?
BSA = 0.20247 x w0.425 x h0.725
BSA = 0.20247 x 720.425 x 1.780.725
BSA = 1.8936 m2
