A comprehensive list of all known published clinical evidence on the device

Randomized comparison of the i-gel(TM) with the LMA Supreme (TM) in anesthetized adult patients

Beleña JM, Núñez M, Vidal A, Gasco C, Alcojor A, Lee P, Pérez JL. Anaesthesist. 2015 Apr;64(4):271-6

140 patients split into device groups, with speed of insertion, success rates, leak pressure and tidal volume evaluated. i-gel proved quicker to insert and generally the results were comparable.

The comparison of ProSeal and I-gel laryngeal mask airways in anesthetized adult patients under controlled ventilation

Ekinci O, Abitagaoglu S, Turan G, Sivrikaya Z, Bosna G, Ozgultekin A. Saudi Med J. 2015 Apr;36(4):432-6

Randomised group of 80 patients split into i-gel and ProSeal groups, with insertion time, gastric tube insertion and complications among the results measured. Insertion was easier and quicker with i-gel.

An evaluation of the I-gel supraglottic airway in 70 pediatric patients

Yeoh TY, Chan KB, Yeo LS, Liu EH, Pan TL. J Anesth. 2015 Apr;29(2):295-8

An evaluation of 70 children undergoing general anaesthesia, with insertion time, leak pressure and gastric tube insertion among the results. Overall insertion success was 96%.

Randomized comparison of the i-gel(TM) with the LMA Supreme (TM) in anesthetized adult patients

Beleña JM, Núñez M, Vidal A, Gasco C, Alcojor A, Lee P, Pérez JL. Anaesthesist. 2015 Apr;64(4):271-6

140 patients split into two groups: i-gel and LMA Supreme, with insertion time, success rate and leak pressure among the results measured. i-gel was quicker to insert but deemed not as easy. No differences were found in leak pressure.

I-gel versus laryngeal mask airway-Proseal: Comparison of two supraglottic airway devices in short surgical procedures

Jadhav PA, Dalvi NP, Tendolkar BA. J Anaesthesiol Clin Pharmacol. 2015 Apr-Jun;31(2):221-5

Ease and time to insertion, airway sealing pressure and adverse events were measured in this study of 60 patients randomly allocated to i-gel and ProSeal groups. i-gel proved easier to insert and less traumatic.
