I-Gel Supraglottic Airway

  • Code: 14870

  • Unit: 

The i-gel® is the innovative second generation supraglottic airway device from Intersurgical.  The first major development since the laryngeal mask airway, i-gel has changed the face of airway management and is now widely used in anaesthesia and resuscitation across the globe. 
 
Made from a medical grade thermoplastic elastomer, i-gel has been designed to create a non-inflatable, anatomical seal of the pharyngeal, laryngeal and perilaryngeal structures whilst avoiding compression trauma. 

Launched in 2007 after years of extensive research and development, i-gel now has an established reputation in anaesthesia with three adult and four paediatric sizes in the range, ideal for use with patient weights between 2-90+kg. In 2012, the indications for use were expanded to include use as a conduit for intubation (with fibreoptic guidance).

i-gel is supplied in an innovative, colour-coded polypropylene protective cradle or cage pack.

Why use the i-gel®?

•  Ease and speed of insertion

•  Reduced trauma

•  Superior seal pressure

•  Gastric access

•  Integral bite block

•  Non-inflatable cuff

What makes i-gel® unique?

i-gel has a soft, gel-like, non-inflatable cuff, designed to provide an anatomical impression fit over the laryngeal inlet. 

The shape, softness and contours accurately mirror the perilaryngeal anatomy - an innovative concept meaning no cuff inflation is required.

Working in harmony with the patient's anatomy, compression and displacement trauma are significantly reduced or eliminated.
