M. L. Bramson
Mogens L. Bramson was instrumental in the development of jet aircraft engine, the heart-lung
machine, and much more. He developed the Heart Lung machine while working at
Hallikainen Instruments. Around the office,
he was known as "Bram."
Bram gave a collection of his papers to
K. E. Hallikainen. Scans are below. The original documents are now held by the
