Howland and Dana developed a simple linear equation for predicting the body surface area of infants. The authors are from Baltimore and New York City.
(1) body weight in grams
body surface area in square centimeters =
= (0.483 * (body weight in grams)) + 730
body surface area in square meters =
= (body surface area in square cm) / 10,000
