lb equals 162.39 mg kg

• The patient height
= 6 feet 2 inches
= ( 6 × 12 + 2 ) inch
= 74 inch
= 74 × 2.54 cm
= 187.96 cm

• patient weight
= 309 lb
= 309 × 0.454 kg
= 140.3 kg

• BSA for the patient is

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

 \quad \quad \quad = sqrt(( 187.96 \quad cm × 140.3 \quad Kg )/(3600)) = 2.7065  m2

• For Doxorubicin :
( 60 \quad mg)/( 1 \quad m^2 ) × 2.7065 m2 × 1 (days of treatment)
= 162.39 mg Ans.
