I-Gel SupraGlottic Airway Size 4
(50 to 90kg)
The I-Gel SupraGlottic Airway is used by Ambulance Paramedics as an emergency airway device in the pre-hospital setting. Supraglottic airway devices play an important role in the airway management of patients with difficult airways. They allow ventilation even in patients in whom facemask ventilation and tracheal intubation are difficult.
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
Note: Specialised training is mandatory for this type of medical device.
