Calvin Brown
My primary research interest involves emergency airway management particularly characterizing the success rates, techniques, and complications of emergency department intubations. I have additional interest in advanced airway devices used in difficult to manage airways. These include fiberoptic/video assisted laryngoscopes and semirigid fiberoptic stylets. I am currently site investigator for the ongoing National Emergency Airway Registry (NEAR), a multi-center international data registry with over 10,000 intubations and am principle investigator for NEAR V, an industry grant funded phase of the NEAR project, aimed at characterizing the use of a video larygoscope during emergency department intubations.

Medical student teaching endeavors include my role as emergency medicine clerkship director for the fourth year medical students as well as tutorial instructor for the Princinple Clinical Experience (PCE) third year students at Brigham and Women's hospital. Through these courses I participate in curriculum development, specifically the implementation of simulation-based seminars in our STRATUS center for medical simulation, direct student teaching and student evaluation. I provided student lectures on airway management, basics of emergency care, environmental emergencies, and procedural training. Additionally, I was a member of the teaching faculty for the Introduction to Clinical Medicine (ICM) course for second year medical students at BWH. I am involved in a variety of resident teaching forums including formal lectures, simulation sessions and resident report.

My current clinical activities involve direct patient care in the emergency department where I carry a full-time clinical schedule.
