i-gel is the innovative second generation supraglottic airway from Intersurgical launched in 2007. The first major development since the laryngeal mask airway, the i-gel changed the face of airway management and is now widely used in anaesthesia and resuscitation across the globe. The i-gel is a truly unique 2nd generation supraglottic airway device with a soft, gel-like, non-inflatable cuff. 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. This innovative concept means that no cuff inflation is required.
The i-gel works in harmony with the patient’s anatomy so that compression and displacement trauma are significantly reduced or eliminated.
