Welcome to the Internet's only site devoted to the Cameron Heartometer Company.  From 1937 through 1976 Cameron Heartometer provided state-of-the-art cardiac instrumentation to thousands of doctors, universities and governmental entities worldwide.  They began as a small affiliated division of Cameron's Surgical Specialty Company, but later broke off to form an independent corporation.  With Cameron Heartometer now only a memory, we thought that the world should know more about our old family business.

On the following pages you will learn the history behind the instruments, their tireless promoters and how they kept a 1920s product viable for five decades.  This company was my grandfather and father's passion.  It's our pleasure to tell their story...
