To Whom it May Concern:

I was asked to write a brief summary of the background which lead me to invent The EKG Glove.

This is a sad story, ruminating on it, still makes me tearful and miserable.

Three decades ago, when I started my residency training at NYU Medical Center, I had befriended a young man who was the Chief Resident of Medical Services. We both did fellowships. I in neurology and he in cardiology. Later we both became faculty members at NY University and climbed to the position of professor rank in our appropriate departments. We both built big practicies, people would say, "Gopi and Peter open NYU and they close NYU". We both came to hospital at 6:30AM and left the hospital after midnight. We saw patients together, every patient in the cardiac post-op unit, I read EKGs with him; sometimes we did our own EKGs. I could say with confidence, no neurologist, gets this kind of in-depth exposure to cardiology, as I got from Peter.

Peter wanted me to learn motor boating so he persuaded me to buy a boat. One Sunday, in September, 12 years ago, he was teaching me navigation in his boat off Freeport, in Long Island. We were 4 or 5 miles out on the ocean. Peter suddenly said "I feel sick, nauseous..." he wretched a few times, perspiriing and looked papery white on his face. I told him to lie down on the deck of the boat and felt his pulse. I could not feel it. He looked very drowsy, cold and clammy. I started to panic; I knew he was having a heart attack of angina episode. I could not use my cell phone and the radio on his boat was defunct. I turned around in panic and started to take the boat to the marina. Half way through, Peter woke up, took the steering from me and docked the boat. In the car, on our way back, I repeatedly reminded him to get checked out the next day, he said OK, OK.

I found out later he never did. Three months later, when I was attending a medical meeting in Miami, at 2AM my hotel phone rang. His girlfriend's mother was on the line. The declaration she made on the phone, froze me like a stone statue: "Gopi, Peter is gone" he was found dead in his bed by his girlfriend, Peter was 50 years old He was famous for his publications on "Sudden Cardiac Death Syndrome". What an irony, NYU, and the world, lost a great physician and I lost a great friend and colleague, forever!

A sense of guilt lingered in my soul, deep down. If I could have had an EKG done on him, at the time he was going through the episode on the boat, I could have convinced him that he had an acute heart condition. Peter would have saught help and lived today! I get tearful, when this thought hits me. I was determined to create a device, which could be used to do an EKG, irrespective of where you are: the idea for the EKG glove sprouted in my brain. It proves again, "necessity is the mother of invention" Amen!!
