i-gel® Plus Resus pack

The i-gel Plus Resus Pack – i-gel® has evolved

In emergency medicine, you need equipment that’s easy, rapid and reliable to use. The i-gel® Plus Resus Pack contains everything you need to prepare, insert and secure the i-gel® Plus. This means there is no need for cuff deflation prior to insertion and no cuff inflation after placement to secure a seal, shortening and simplifying the preparation and insertion procedure.

The i-gel® Plus is incredibly easy to use. Insertion is rapid and can normally be achieved in less than 5 seconds. The simplicity of i-gel® Plus means the insertion technique is instinctive, reliable and does not require or benefit from the insertion of fingers or thumbs into the patient’s mouth. The i-gel® Plus has been designed to facilitate ventilation as part of standard resuscitation protocols, such as those designated by the American Heart Association (AHA) and European Resuscitation Council (ERC). However, the i-gel® Plus incorporates a supplementary oxygen port, so can also be used for the delivery of passive oxygenation, or Passive Airway Management (PAM™), as part of an appropriate cardio-cerebral resuscitation (CCR) protocol.

i-gel Plus Resus Pack – product improvements
The i-gel® Plus Resus Pack represents an advance on the i-gel® O2 Resus Pack, incorporating the more advanced i-gel® Plus device with the following product improvements.

Larger gastric channel to enhance patient safety
The diameter of the gastric channel has been increased to allow for the insertion of a larger gastric tube and to help optimize management of regurgitant fluid, thereby potentially reducing the risk of aspiration and increasing patient safety.

The maximum size of gastric tube that can be passed down the gastric channel for each size of i-gel® Plus in comparison to original i-gel® is shown in the chart below.
Size of device Original i-gel® i-gel® Plus
3 12FG 16FG
4 12FG 18FG
5 14FG 18FG

New intubation ramp to optimize use as a conduit for intubation
An intubation ramp is provided in the airway channel where the channel exits in to the bowl of the non-inflatable cuff, helping to ensure that when the device is used as a conduit for intubation (with fiberoptic guidance), the tracheal tube exits the i-gel® Plus at the optimal angle to allow reliable and safe passage through the vocal cords and into the trachea.

Longer cuff tip to enhance the oesophageal seal
i-gel® Plus incorporates a small increase in the length of the cuff tip. This may help to increase the esophageal seal and in combination with the larger gastric channel, provide improved protection against aspiration.

The i-gel® Plus Resus Pack is available in 3 adult sizes and includes:
• i-gel® Plus supraglottic airway
• Sachet of lubricant — for quick and easy lubrication of the i-gel® Plus prior to insertion
• Airway support strap — to secure the i-gel® Plus in position
