i-gel® is available in four paediatric as well as three adult sizes, making it applicable for use with patients from 2kg to 90+kg. The paediatric i-gel® is indicated in securing and maintaining
a patent airway in routine and emergency anaesthetics for operations of fasted patients during spontaneous or intermittent positive pressure ventilation (IPPV) and during resuscitation of the unconscious patient, by personnel who are suitably trained and experienced in the use of airway management techniques and devices.
The i-gel® is a truly unique single use, latex and PVC free airway device, representing the culmination of years of extensive research and development. Based on the original i-gel® design
inspired by the physiology of the perilaryngeal framework itself, everything about the paediatric i-gel® has been designed to work in perfect unison with a child’s anatomy, and the specific
anatomical, physiological and pathological differences that make paediatric anaesthesia particularly challenging.
