  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. 

Launched in 2007 after years of extensive research and development, i-gel now has an established reputation in anaesthesia with three adult and four paediatric 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 fibreoptic guidance).
 
i-gel is supplied in an innovative, colour-coded protective cradle (adult sizes) or cage pack (paediatric sizes), to ensure the product is maintained in the correct flexion prior to use, important for patient safety and product performance, and to optimise gas circulation for effective sterilisation. The cradle and cage pack also acts as a base for lubrication.

The protective cradle (adult sizes) and cage pack (paediatric sizes) for standard i-gel are both made from polypropylene (PP) and can be recycled. The appropriate recycling symbol is already on the cage pack and is in the process of being added to the protective cradle.
  The recycling symbol can be seen on the
underside of the cage pack of the paediatric sizes

 


 
   
Why use the i-gel®?

•  Ease and speed of insertion

•  Reduced trauma

•  Superior seal pressure

•  Gastric access

•  Integral bite block

•  Non-inflatable cuff
 


What makes i-gel® unique?

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.
