Henlin T, Michalek P, Tyll T, Hinds JD, Dobias M. Biomed Res Int; 2014: 376871. Epub 2014 Mar 3

A comprehensive review assessing the changing core protocols of treatment of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), covering basic life support (BLS), oxygenation, passive oxygenation, airway management strategies, intubation, use of supraglottic airways and post-return of spontaneous
circulation (ROSC) care.

A cohort evaluation of the paediatric i-gel® airway during anaesthesia in 120 children

Beringer R, Kelly F, Cook T, Nolan J, Hardy R, Simpson T, White M. Anaesthesia 2012; 66(12): 1121-1126

120 children up to 13 years of age were studied using the paediatric i-gel® during general anaesthesia to assess efficacy and usability. Insertion success and number of attempts, ventilation, leak pressure and fibreoptic view were all recorded. Airway manipulations and complications were also noted. In 94% of children the i-gel® was inserted and a clear airway maintained without complication.

The effect of i-gel® airway on intraocular pressure in pediatric patients who received sevoflurane or desflurane during strabismus surgery

Sahin A, Tüfek A, Cingü AK, Caça I, Tokgöz O, Balsak S. Pediatr Anesth 2012; 22(8): 772-775

47 children due for eye surgery were administered with sevoflurane or desflurane randomly for anaesthesia. Intraocular pressure was then measured prior to i-gel® insertion, at two and five minutes after insertion, and immediately after removal. Sustained pressure decrease present during procedure, but no significant difference between pre- and post-operative pressure.
