About Ramsey Medical, Inc.
Ramsey Medical, Inc. is a privately held company focused on product development in the blood pressure measurement and vital signs monitoring fields. It was founded by Maynard Ramsey, MD, PhD, who invented the DINAMAP NIBP monitor in 1976. After being acquired by Johnson & Johnson, DINAMAP technology became the “gold standard” of NIBP measurement for hospital clinical use in areas ranging from OR/critical care to med/surg.
Since forming Ramsey Medical,
Dr. Ramsey developed petMAP, an innovative device for BP measurement in
companion animals, and released it in 2005. petMAP’s PPO (petMAP
Proprietary Optimizations) feature increases the accuracy and
sensitivity of readings through optimizations for species (dog/cat) and
cuff site for better correlation to intra-arterial pressures.
Subsequently, Dr. Ramsey developed statMAP, a new class of NIBP device
for stat vitals, which was released during Q4, 2008. It is anticipated
that statMAP’s unique design and portability will provide its markets a
valuable new tool for NIBP measurement…in the field, in transport and in
