Human body surface area
Ex dubois.png
author Leif Roschier

Theory and background

Calculated body surface area (BSA) of human body is according to Ref. [1] [2]

[math]{BSA}=(71.84 \times {weight \mbox{ (kg)}}^{0.425} \times {height \mbox{ (cm)}}^{0.725})\ / \ 10000[/math]

Construction of the nomograph

A nomograph is illustrated at [3] that guided the construction of the nomograph. A type 1 was chosen and dual scales were put by using type 8 singular blocks.

Equation was written as

[math]-\log(\frac{BSA}{0.007184})+\log(w^{0.425})+\log(h^{0.725})=0 [/math]


for type 1 block.
