i-gel® Supraglottic Airway Device

  • £9.50


The i-gel is a truly unique single use, latex and PVC free airway device, representing the culmination of years of extensive research and development. Everything about the i-gel has been designed to work in perfect unison with the anatomy; the i-gel design was inspired by the physiology of the perilaryngeal framework itself – airway management as nature might have intended.

The shape, softness and contours accurately mirror the perilaryngeal anatomy to create the perfect fit.This innovative concept means that no cuff in ation is required. The i-gel works in harmony with the patient’s anatomy so that compression and displacement trauma are signi cantly reduced or eliminated.

i-gel gets its name from the soft gel-like material from which it is made. It is the innovative application of this material that has enabled the development of a unique non-inflatable cuff. This key feature means insertion of i-gel is easy, rapid and consistently reliable.

i-gel is incredibly easy to use. A proficient user can achieve insertion of the i-gel in less than 5 seconds. With no inflatable cuff, i-gel provides a safe and rapid airway management solution.

The adult i-gel is indicated for securing and maintaining a patient airway in routine and emergency anaesthetics of fasted patients, during spontaneous or intermittent positive pressure ventilation (IPPV), during resuscitation of the unconscious patient, and as a conduit for intubation under breoptic guidance in a known or unexpectedly dif cult intubation, by personnel who are suitably trained and experienced in the use of airway management techniques and devices.

Accurate and natural positioning

The i-gel accurately and naturally positions itself over the laryngeal framework, providing a reliable perilaryngeal seal without the need for an in atable cuff.
