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.
- 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.
- Ease and speed of insertion
- Reduced trauma
- Superior seal pressure
- Gastric access
- Integral bite block
- Non-inflatable cuff
