Current developed a linear equation for predicting the body surface area (BSA) in infants and young children. The authors is from the University of Mississippi.
Patient selection: infants and children with body weight from 3 to 30 kilograms
body surface area in square centimeter =
= (0.3433 * (body weight in grams)) + 1321
body surface area in square meters =
= ((0.3433 * (body weight in grams)) + 1321) / 10000 =
= (0.03433 * (body weight in kilograms) + 0.1321
