body surface area
by: Anonymous

Body surface area in meters squared:
First multiply the patient's weight in kg and height in cm.
Second, divide that number by 3,600.
Finally, calculate the square root of that number.

Or, in non-metric:
First multiply the patient's height in inches and weight in pounds.
Second, divide that number by 3,131.
Finally, calculate the square root of that number.
