"In this work is recorded Hales' invention of the manometer, with which he was the first to measure blood-pressure. His work is the greatest single contribution to our knowledge of the vascular system after Harvey, and led to the development of the blood-pressure measuring instruments now in universal use."(GM). "Stephen Hales took the next important step after Harvey and Malpighi in elucidating the physiology of the circulation." (Fulton, Selected Readings in the History of Physiology).
