Dr. Rosenblatt is a graduate of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He completed a residency in Pediatrics at Stanford, before training in Anesthesiology at Yale. Soon after completing his residency in Anesthesiology, he founded REMEDY (Recovered Medical Equipment for the Developing World), which has a nation and world wide reach. The REMEDY sub-program, Med-Eq distributed unused medical supplies from individuals and industry to charities all over the world. His patient care, academic, teaching and research interest is in difficult airway management. His two most significant contributions in this field are the Airway Approach Algorithm and Preoperative Endoscopic Airway Examination. He is past president of the Society for Airway Management, and a current member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists Task Force on the Difficult Airway. His decision tree tool and infographic algorithm are some of the most significant changes to the ASA algorithm since its publication in 1993. 

Currently he is an associate floor runner in the Smilow Cancer Hospital.
