This study investigates the hand surface area (HSA) and palm surface area (PSA) percentages of body surface area (BSA). The HSA and PSA of 135 men and 135 women were measured by scanner and incorporated into an existing BSA database to derive %HSA/BSA and %PSA/BSA using five stature heights and three body weights in accordance with population distribution. Allowing for various degrees of specificity, the mean %HSA/BSA and mean %PSA/BSA were found to be 2.29% (0.24%) and 0.89% (0.09… CONTINUE READING
