i-gel Supraglottic Airway
(Including VAT - £10.14)
i-gel is a truly unique, single use, supraglottic airway management device that represents the culmination of years of extensive research and development.
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 is indicated for use in securing and maintaining a patent airway in routine and emergency anaesthetics of fasted patients, during spontaneous or intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and during resuscitation of the unconscious patient, by personnel who are suitably trained and experienced in the use of airway management techniques and devices.
i-gel is currently available in six sizes and is supplied in an innovative, colour-coded polypropylene ‘protective cradle’.
Made from a unique, soft, gel-like material to allow ease of insertion and reduced trauma.
Gastric channel designed to improve and enhance patient safety.
Integral bite-block reduces the possibility of airway channel occlusion.
Virtually eliminates rotation.
Reduces the possibility of epiglottis downfolding and obstructing the airway.
Unique packaging protects the i-gel in transit and ensures that it maintains its anatomical shape
