Country of manufacture

Categories: Medicine, Diagnostics


 As early as the 19th century, venous pressure was used in the diagnoses and assessment  of congestive heart failure. Leamon’s apparatus was introduced between the wars,  a time when the diagnostic importance of venous pressure was beginning to be more widely understood  and measured clinically. The presence of mimeographed rather than printed instructions  and a catalog cut might indicate that this was an early model  used within the company  by Pilling.
