lb equals 216.84 mg kg

• The patient height
= 4 feet 10 inches
= ( 4 × 12 + 10 ) inch
= 58 inch
= 58 × 2.54 cm
= 147.32 cm

• patient weight
= 253 lb
= 253 × 0.454 kg
= 114.9 kg

• BSA for the patient is

BSA = \quad sqrt(( Height (cm) × Weight (Kg) )/(3600))

 \quad \quad \quad = sqrt(( 147.32 \quad cm × 114.9 \quad Kg )/(3600)) = 2.1684  m2

• For Cisplatin :
( 100 \quad mg)/( 1 \quad m^2 ) × 2.1684 m2 × 1 (days of treatment)
= 216.84 mg Ans.
