|i-gel® : The supraglottic airway with a non-inflatable cuff
Quick, easy and reliable to insert, i-gel® from Intersurgical is ideal for use as a routine airway in anaesthesia. Providing high seal pressures and reduced trauma, it also incorporates a gastric channel to give additional protection against aspiration and has the versatility to be applicable for use during difficult airway management, as a rescue device and as a conduit for intubation (with fibreoptic guidance, for i-gel sizes 3, 4 and 5).
|Featuring all known clinical evidence on the i-gel, the second edition of the bibliography compiles studies, case reports and correspondence on the performance of the device in anaesthesia, difficult airway management and resuscitation.
Our new i-gel Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine bibliography provides the same information as our standard booklet, but features studies relating only to the use of i-gel in a resuscitation or emergency medicine setting.
Both are available for free as a PDF or in print upon request, or via the app on our Facebook page.
|The i-gel® has a host of features that provide significant benefits to the patient and the clinician
|i-gel is available in seven sizes and supplied in an innovative, colour-coded protective cradle (adult sizes) or cage pack (paediatric sizes), to ensure the product is maintained in the correct flexion prior to use, important for patient safety and product performance, and to optimise gas circulation for effective sterilisation. The cradle and cage pack also acts as a base for lubrication.
The protective cradle (adult sizes) and cage pack (paediatric sizes) for standard i-gel are both made from polypropylene (PP) and can be recycled. The appropriate recycling symbol is already on the cage pack and is in the process of being added to the protective cradle.
The recycling symbol can be seen on the
underside of the cage pack of the paediatric sizes
