lb equals 110.78 mg kg

• The patient height
= 5 feet 3 inches
= ( 5 × 12 + 3 ) inch
= 63 inch
= 63 × 2.54 cm
= 160.02 cm

• patient weight
= 169 lb
= 169 × 0.454 kg
= 76.7 kg

• BSA for the patient is

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

 \quad \quad \quad = sqrt(( 160.02 \quad cm × 76.7 \quad Kg )/(3600)) = 1.8464  m2

• For Doxorubicin :
( 60 \quad mg)/( 1 \quad m^2 ) × 1.8464 m2 × 1 (days of treatment)
= 110.784 mg Ans.
