iGel Airway Release

As of June 1st, 2019 the BREMS Region will begin using the iGel Airway in place of the KING LTD Airway.

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 anesthesia 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 anesthesia with three adult and four pediatric 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 fiberoptic guidance).
