i-gel Supraglottic Airway
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 while avoiding compression trauma.
- 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
The i-gel works in harmony with the patient’s anatomy so that compression and displacement trauma are significantly reduced or eliminated.
THE NON-INFLATABLE CUFF
i-gel gets its name from the soft gel-like material from which it is made. It is the innovative application of this material that has enabled the development of a unique non-inflatable cuff. This key feature means insertion of i-gel is easy, rapid and consistently reliable.
THE SIMPLE, SAFE AND RAPID SOLUTION
i-gel is incredibly easy to use. A proficient user can achieve insertion of the i-gel in less than 5 seconds. With no inflatable cuff, i-gel provides a safe and rapid airway management solution.
