Dr. Peter G. Brindley is an Attending Physician and Associate Director in Intensive Care, as well as a Full Professor in Critical Care Medicine at the University of Alberta. He has 100 peer reviewed publications and manuscripts, including Airway Management Outside of the Operating Room: How to PREPARE.
Dr. Brindley says that “communication is the most dangerous procedure in the hospital.” Nothing can go right unless everyone is on the same page, working together. Being in constant communication with colleagues is the only way to ensure that everything will go to plan. When teaching students, he sees the key to success is to go beyond basic instruction and procedures, “I really enjoy teaching people to think rather than just ‘do this, don’t do that.’”
Dr. Brindley loves hiking, biking, kayaking, and spending as much time outdoors as possible. He also enjoys eating comfort food from his home country, England.
