The model 845 was introduced in 1978. It could be set to take automatic readings as often as once per minute for up to 16 minutes, or it could be switched to manual mode. The results of each reading remained on display until a new reading was taken. In 1979, AMR was acquired by Johnson & Johnson, which formed the Critikon division to manufacture AMR's products. Dr. Ramsey worked for Critikon for 15 years before starting another new company of his own. In 2010 the Society for Technology in Anesthesia honored Dr. Ramsey with the Gravenstein Award for his life-long contribution to blood pressure measurement.
The example shown here was donated by Drs. Susan and Jerry Dorsch.
