Intersurgical will be displaying i-gel and i-gel O2 Resus Pack at Arab Health 2015 on stand Z1B51 in Zabeel Hall.
Arab Health 2015 will take place from 26-29 January at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The i-gel is a second generation supraglottic airway, which is used in many hospitals in Europe, the Middle East and worldwide.
The i-gel, named from the soft gel-like material it is made of, is an innovative application of the material, which also enabled development of the i-gel’s non-inflatable cuff.
One of the key features of i-gel is that it is easy-to-use, rapid and consistently reliable.
Launched in 2007, the device incorporates a gastric channel for improved safety, an integral bite block to reduce the possibility of airway occlusion, and a buccal cavity stabiliser to aid rapid insertion and eliminate potential for rotation.
Low post-operative complications and high seal pressures provide benefits for clinicians and patients. The i-gel is indicated for use in anaesthesia and resuscitation in adults.
A number of case reports and clinical studies highlighted the potential advantages i-gel offers in a resuscitation scenario, when seconds can make a significant difference.
In many cases, insertion can be achieved in less than five seconds. The range also includes four paediatric sizes, allowing use with patients weighing at least 2kg.
A recent addition to the range is i-gel O2 Resus Pack, which has been specially designed to facilitate ventilation as part of standard resuscitation protocols, such as those designated by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC).
In addition, i-gel O2 also incorporates a supplementary oxygen port for delivery of passive oxygenation, or passive airway management (PAM), as part of an appropriate cardiocerebral resuscitation (CCR) protocol.
The i-gel O2 Resus Pack has the advantages of a standard i-gel, along with everything required to prepare, insert and secure the device in one pack, allowing focus to remain on the patient.
