Description of Clinical Expertise

Pediatric Difficult Airway Management

Description of Research Expertise

I am part of the Airway Program. This program focuses on improving the quality and safety of airway management by researching and implementing innovative airway techniques, equipment, and educational programs. I am leading the research arm of this group with several research studies and publications forthcoming. Recent data from the multicenter international PeDI registry housed at CHOP demonstrates a high incidence of complications and adverse events during intubation in children with difficult airways. I am leading the PeDI studies at CHOP- the first being an analysis of the impact of muscle relaxant use on complications. I will lead CHOP’s participation in a prospective multicenter comparative study examining the use of video laryngoscopy and direct laryngoscopy in infants with normal airways. The overarching goal will be to determine best practices to reduce the severe complications noted in our earlier work.
