An experimental study using i-gel® on 100 female patients undergoing elective gynaecologic surgery was performance-measured on ease of insertion, time to insert, peak airway pressure and leak pressure. A gastric tube was placed in each patient. Pharyngolaryngeal morbidities were also recorded. In 92% of patients, i-gel® was inserted successfully first time and there were no instances of blood on the device post-procedure. Authors confirm the i-gel® is a simple and easy to use device.
