Assistant Chief, Department of Emergency Medicine
Hennepin County Medical Center
Professor, University of Minnesota
Dr. Robert Reardon is a Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Minnesota, as well as a Faculty Physician, Assistant Chief of the Emergency Department, and Medical Staff Quality Committee Member at Hennepin County Medical Center.
Dr. Reardon’s favorite part about teaching is watching students gain confidence as they approach new and scary situations. He finds that you need to be a balance of confident and humble when approaching emergency airways. He also thinks it’s important to call for help, but don’t assume others can manage airways better than you can. “The day I called for help and nobody helpful came was when I realized that I better be really good at emergency airway management,” he says.
When not a work, Dr. Reardon likes to run, bike, swim and ski.
