The body surface area of 100 Chinese adults (50 for each sex) was measured with the paper cast method and compared to the results estimated by the Stevenson's "height-weight-surface" formula. Our results shows that Stevenson's formula is no longer suitable for the Chinese. Our formulae for Chinese are as follows: SI=0.0061 x H + 0.0124 x W - 0.0099 (for both sexes), SII=0.0057 x H + 0.0121 - W + 0.0882 (for male), SIII=0.0073 H + 0.0127 x W - 0.2106 (for female) H: body height, W: body weight… CONTINUE READING
