I-Gel Supraglottic Airway

Of the many different available Supraglottic Airways available, HCVI/MOAS has chosen the I-Gel as our preferred Supraglottic Airway.

Choosing the appropriate size I-Gel:

  • Studies showed that the I-Gel® provides a good seal during anaesthesia both for spontaneously breathing and controlled ventilation. The manufacturer recommends a weight-based formula (size 3 for weight < 50 kg, size 4 for weight 50–90 kg, and size 5 for weight > 90 kg) to chose the size.
