dc.descriptionThe Hamilton Manometer was invented by William F. Hamilton, PhD, Professor and Chair of Physiology at MCG; in collaboration with Dr. Harry Harper, Jr in the 1930s. The Hamilton Manometer enabled Dr. Hamilton, Dr. Harry T. Harper, Jr., and Dr. Robert A. Woodbury to produce the first print recording ever made of blood pressure pulses in a human on January 30, 1935. This instrument was the first one used to record details of human arterial pressure pulse by means of a needle and hydraulic system. Dimensions are: 4' H x 24" W x 24" L; weight: too large to weigh.
