Introducing the new i-view™ video laryngoscope

Video laryngoscopy wherever and whenever you intubate.
i-view™ is the new single use, fully disposable video laryngoscope from Intersurgical, providing the option of video laryngoscopy in the ER, ICU, maternity or the pre-hospital environment. 
 
By incorporating a Macintosh blade, i-view can also be used for direct laryngoscopy and the technique for insertion is more familiar and instinctive than for devices with a hyper-angulated blade. Its ergonomic design ensures i-view is easy to use, and the integral LCD screen provides an optimal view in a variety of light conditions.

By combining all the advantages of a fully integrated video laryngoscope in a single use, disposable product, i-view provides a cost-effective solution.
 
In addition, i-view is ready to use seconds after removing from the packaging.

i-gel O2 Resus Pack included in TCCC guidelines

We are delighted to announce that earlier this year the Intersurgical i-gel O2 Resus Pack* was included in the US Military Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) guidelines for securing an airway in the Tactical Evacuation (TACEVAC) phase of care.

TCCC is the standard of care for Prehospital Battlefield Medicine and TACEVAC relates to the care given to a casualty whilst still under fire on the battlefield. The Committee on TCCC issue and regularly update guidelines. These guidelines include airway management and the use of supraglottic airways. 
 
The original TCCC guidelines were published in 1996 and an update in 2012 reaffirmed support for the use of SADs for the TACEVAC phase of care, but did not recommend a specific device, as they did not feel there was sufficient evidence at the time to do so. However, in the latest update, i-gel has been designated as the 'preferred Extraglottic Airway (EGA)' as it was decided it had a number of characteristics that make it favourable for use on the battlefield.
 
They concluded that current evidence suggests the i-gel performs as well or better than the other SADs available and has other advantages in:
 
• Ease of training
• Size & weight
• Cost
• Safety
• Simplicity of use
 
The gel-filled cuff in the i-gel both eliminates the need for cuff pressure monitoring during flight and reduces the risk of pressure-induced neuropraxia to cranial nerves in the oropharynx and hypopharynx as a complication of SAD use.
 
The latest changes to the TCCC guidelines does the following things:
 
• Adds extraglottic airways (EGAs) as an option for airway management in Tactical Field Care;
• Recommends the i-gel as the preferred EGA in TCCC because its gel-filled cuff makes it simpler to use than EGAs with air-filled cuffs and also eliminates the need for monitoring of cuff pressure;
 
You can find all of the above details confirmed in the abstract of the article, 'Extraglottic Airways in Tactical Combat Casualty Care: TCCC Guidelines Change 17-01 28 August 2017 published in the Journal of Special Operations Medicine by Otten EJ, Montgomery HR, Butler FK Jr.

For further information regarding i-gel® and the i-gel O2 Resus Pack please visit www.i-gel.com or contact us.

We also offer an extensive range of airway management devices and accessories.  Please visit our relevant product pages or contact us for further information.

2018 Photo Calendar Competition - June's Winning Entry!

What could sum up the month of June more than beach huts?
Keith Underwood from Scarborough Hospital entered this photo on behalf of his wife Kathy, who sadly passed away before the competition was launched.

Kathy also worked within the trust and was well known for her photography. Keith told us, 'Pictures she has taken are also in Theatre and the Postgraduate Centre at Scarborough Hospital.' He gave us further insight into why he loves this picture, 'This is a picture of the holiday huts on the North Bay at Scarborough. The colour of the huts and the dramatic sky blended it, and with the use of a fisheye lens just made this a perfect picture. I have a copy of this hanging in my house to remind me of her.'

We also love this picture and felt it was perfect for our photo calendar.

We have recently launched our 2019 Photo Calendar Competition for customers  - Go wild at work! Click here to see how you can take part.
