      Our mentor of the past two decades, a dear friend and colleague, Dr Hal Weil, died on July 29, 2011 at his Rancho Mirage, California home. This was only 2 weeks after his full time presence in his beloved office at our Institute and 3 days after he completed his National Institutes of Health (NIH) and United States patent applications for an ‘Intelligent Alarm System’. The world of critical care medicine and resuscitation medicine has lost a great leader and mentor. He will be dearly missed by all of us, and especially by those who were trained and continuously mentored by him.
