Enter the greatest length and the perpendicular greatest width into the Wound Surface Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Wound Surface Area.

## Wound Surface Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Wound Surface Area.

WSA = GL * GW

• Where WSA is the Wound Surface Area
• GL is the greatest length
• GW is the perpendicular greatest width

## How to Calculate Wound Surface Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Wound Surface Area.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the greatest length.
• The greatest length is given as: 3.
2. Next, determine the perpendicular greatest width.
• The perpendicular greatest width is provided as: 5.
3. Finally, calculate the Wound Surface Area using the equation above:

WSA = GL * GW

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

WSA = 3 * 5 = 15.00

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

greatest length = 4

perpendicular greatest width = 2
