A History of Setting Standards

The 2002 AAMI SP-10 Standard was dedicated to Dr. Myron Cohen, founder of CAS Medical Systems, Inc.

In Memoriam

The AAMI Sphygmomanometer Committee would like to gratefully acknowledge the late Myron L. (Mike) Cohen, Ph.D., of CAS Medical Systems, whose input and leadership contributed to the writing of this document. Dr. Cohen was responsible for coordinating the early drafting of this document and served as the industry co-chair of the committee until the time of the document's first ballot.

Mike Cohen personified dignity and integrity. He always chose the right way to do things, rather than the easy way. His work on the AAMI committee included several trips abroad to try to harmonize U.S. and European standards in order to make the standards more useful for both clinicians and manufacturers. Those who worked with Mike will miss his leadership. Mike was a true Renaissance man who loved opera and baseball, dining and fishing, and, most of all, his wife Sally, his children, and grandchildren.
