Steady as a Heartbeat: the 8030A
Building on the success of the revolutionary 8020A, by 1975 Hewlett-Packard had introduced an updated, noninvasive fetal heart monitor, the 8030A. The new device offered medical professionals four different methods of monitoring fetal heart rates in real time, all in a device that was relatively simple and compact. This photo of Dave Packard exploring the device was taken at HP’s annual stockholders meeting, where the 8030A drew attention for its prospects as a hot selling item.
