Rule of Nines for Body Areas


This set of medical illustrations depicts the 'Rule of Nines' for body areas. It divides the body into sections that represent nine percent of the total body surface area (TBSA). It can be used in conjunction with adult burn patients to determine the TBSA that has been burned. Sections include the head and neck, arms, torso (chest, anterior abdomen, upper and lower back), perineum and legs.
