compute_bsa {admiral} R Documentation

## Compute Body Surface Area (BSA)

### Description

Computes BSA from height and weight making use of the specified derivation method

### Usage

compute_bsa(height = height, weight = weight, method)


### Arguments

 height HEIGHT value It is expected that HEIGHT is in cm. Permitted Values: numeric vector weight WEIGHT value It is expected that WEIGHT is in kg. Permitted Values: numeric vector method Derivation method to use: Mosteller: sqrt(height * weight / 3600) DuBois-DuBois: 0.20247 * (height/100) ^ 0.725 * weight ^ 0.425 Haycock: 0.024265 * height ^ 0.3964 * weight ^ 0.5378 Gehan-George: 0.0235 * height ^ 0.42246 * weight ^ 0.51456 Boyd: 0.0003207 * (height ^ 0.3) * (1000 * weight) ^ (0.7285 - (0.0188 * log10(1000 * weight))) Fujimoto: 0.008883 * height ^ 0.663 * weight ^ 0.444 Takahira: 0.007241 * height ^ 0.725 * weight ^ 0.425 Permitted Values: character value

### Details

Usually this computation function can not be used with ⁠%>%⁠.

### Value

The BSA (Body Surface Area) in m^2.

### Examples

# Derive BSA by the Mosteller method
compute_bsa(
height = 170,
weight = 75,
method = "Mosteller"
)

# Derive BSA by the DuBois & DuBois method
compute_bsa(
height = c(170, 185),
weight = c(75, 90),
method = "DuBois-DuBois"
)
