i-view™ video laryngoscope, tracheal intubation and COVID-19

Throughout the pandemic there has been much discussion regarding the best way to manage the airway of patients with COVID-19. In a new blog post, our Airway Group Product Manager, David Chapman, investigates the use of the i-view™ video laryngoscope in videolaryngoscopy for tracheal intubation in the context of Coronavirus.



The article looks at the latest guidelines regarding airway management, the potential benefits of single use devices in the context of infection control and what advantages videolaryngoscopy may have to offer over direct laryngoscopy for tracheal intubation.

Access to the article can be found on the blog itself, plus through the 'Interact with us' section of the i-gel® supraglottic airway website.

The i-view™ video laryngoscope is a single use, fully disposable video laryngoscope, providing the option of video laryngoscopy wherever you might need to intubate.

New i-view™ video laryngoscope instructional video

A short instructional video is now available for the i-view video laryngoscope. The video provides a useful guide and overview of the i-view and an introduction to the basic steps for correct use.
With many COVID-19 protocols recommending the use of video laryngoscopy for patients who require intubation, the  i-view provides the option of a single use, fully disposable video laryngoscope with a standard Macintosh blade, making it ideal for use where there is a concern regarding infection control.

The video is available on the dedicated i-view page, product pages and Education video page.

Filtration and humidification

The recent reported outbreak of respiratory infections in the Chinese city of Wuhan has been identified as being caused by 2019-nCoV (2019 Novel Coronavirus).

The number of reports of infection has been rising quickly during January 2020, with 2798 confirmed cases at time of writing.  The current assessment from the World Health Organisation (WHO) is that the risk of this event remains ‘very high’ in China, and ‘high’ at a regional and global level. Keep up to date with the latest news on the WHO website.

ClearLite™ anaesthetic face masks

ClearLite is a new range of phthalate and PVC-free anaesthetic face masks available with or without a hook ring.

The range is lightweight and crystal clear with a colour-coded seal for ease of size selection.  The range is available in seven sizes - from 0 (neonatal) through to size 6 (large adult) - to meet the clinical needs of all patient types and sizes.

Due to the enhanced anatomical design and flexible, non-inflatable cuff, the ClearLite mask offers superior seal performance with minimum pressure, reducing the risk of unnecessary discomfort and potential trauma. The superior seal can also assist the clinician in providing optimum manual ventilation of the patient in both the anaesthetic and emergency situation.

As the ClearLite mask is phthalate and PVC free, and is available without a hook ring, it significantly reduces waste and minimises the impact on the environment.
