Since 1998, the National Emergency Airway Registry (NEAR) has been a successful, multi-center observational intubation registry coordinated through the Department of Emergency Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. The NEAR creator is Ron M. Walls, MD, and the current Principal Investigator is Calvin A. Brown III, MD.

NEAR has provided a robust source of scientific discovery for emergency airway management and has generated multiple manuscripts, research reports and abstracts. NEAR data have been presented at regional, local and international scientific assemblies. The project has an expanding list of enrolling centers from around the world.
