IÄôm an Associate Professor and cardiothoracic anesthesiologist at the University of British Columbia, a Canadian Royal College examiner, and proud of my pediatric emergency medicine roots. IÄôm currently the assistant head of the Canadian Airway Focus Group, a rather rowdy group of Canadians who publishes airway management guidelines intermittently. For me, the finest areas of medicine are those simultaneously ÄòownedÄô by various specialties and professions; resuscitation, airway management, echocardiography and communication in crisis. My area of inquiry is airway management; particularly observational studies looking at what we actually do in high-risk clinical situations. When not immersed clinical care, I can be found with at least one animal. Very proud of my ever-expanding network of collaborating colleagues in various acute care specialties and countries; cocktails are sometimes involved. My family truly is my rock.
