|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 anesthesia and resuscitation across the globe.|
Made from a medical grade thermoplastic elastomer, i-gel has been designed to create a non-inflating, anatomical seal of the pharyngeal, laryngeal and perilaryngeal structures while avoiding compression trauma.
Launched in 2007 after years of extensive research and development, i-gel now has an established reputation in anesthesia with three adult and four pediatric 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 fiberoptic guidance for i-gel sizes 3, 4 and 5).
i-gel is supplied in an innovative, color-coded polypropylene protective cradle or cage pack.
