Widely used in human medicine, a supraglottic airway device (SGAD) is an alternative to an endotracheal tube, used to deliver anaesthetic gases and/or oxygen to anaesthetised patients. Designed to sit in the pharynx, they avoid many of the problems caused by ET tubes such as laryngeal and tracheal trauma. They are also quick and easy to place and are useful for emergency resuscitation. v-gel® devices are the first veterinary species-specific SGADs, currently used all over the world in cats and rabbits.

New to v-gel® advanced:

• Improved design-easier to place, higher seal pressures, more space for dental procedures, low dead space connector

• Single use – avoids cross-contamination

Plus original features of v-gel® cat and v-gel® rabbit devices

• Anatomical matching features combined with a soft material to give a high quality pressure seal

• Suited to ventilated as well as spontaneously breathing patients

• Avoids laryngeal and tracheal trauma, which means safer anaesthetics and comfortable patient recoveries

• Fast, easy, safe and stress-free insertions

• No post-operative coughing or gagging

• Low airway resistance due to the large airway channel within the device

• High quality pressure seal restricting leakage of volatile anaesthetic agents, thus improving health and safety for staff

• The tip inserts into upper oesophagus to help prevent regurgitation of stomach contents

• Suitable for a variety of patients including brachycephalics, and procedures including dentals
