Dr. Bret Nelson is an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. He is also Attending at the Mount Sinai Hospital in the Department of Emergency Medicine. In 2013 he was awarded the National Faculty Teaching Award from the American College of Emergency Physicians.
Dr. Nelson has spoken all over the world on airway management, and his first piece of advice is to always have a back-up plan handy. “Keep asking yourself, “what if?” and thinking through different options instead of relying on whatever worked last time,” he says. He loves teaching, as it gives everyone the opportunity to unpack their thought processes, and strengthen and challenge their knowledge.
Dr. Nelson is also the Chief of the Ultrasound Division at the Department of Emergency Medicine at Mount Sinai.
