Title: A centennial of two great discoveries in the history of medicine: hyperpiesis and the sphygmomanometer (1896-1996) [Cien años de dos grandes acontecimientos en la historia de la medicina: hiperpiesis y esfigmomanómetro (1896-1996).]

Abstract: This paper describes two outstanding contributions in the understanding and treatment of primary arterial hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. In 1896, Sir T. Clifford Allbutt reported a series of clinical cases associated with high intensity in the arterial pulse and no renal damage. He named this hyperpiesis to distinguish it from Bright's disease or chronic renal insufficiency. In the same year, Scipione Riva-Rocci invented the Sphygmomanometer which, in principle, is still used today. Also, this paper describes the research work which would lead to the development of the blood pressure measurement device. This development is as significant now as it was then.
