This paper describes the development of supraglottic airways and the i-gel® in particular. A review of the available i-gel® literature showed that there are considerable benefits to using the device during general anaesthesia. The experiences of the authors during the use of i-gel® in 34 patients are also described. The authors believe that the i-gel® is suitable for use during anaesthesia and potentially resuscitation. However, more research should be carried out, especially in terms of comparison with other supraglottic airways.
