Adlam M, Purnell D. Resuscitation 2012; 83(5): e129

Twenty-one Foundation Year One Trainees were asked to attempt to ventilate a manikin with either an LMA or i-gel®, of their own choosing. Results showed 71% chose to use an LMA, although on reflection 95% preferred the i-gel®. Speed of insertion was faster with i-gel®. Study supports use of i-gel® on resus trolleys for use by non-airway trained doctors.
