2020 Calendar Competition – November’s Winning Entry!

Lee Blackman of Salford Royal takes November’s spot in our 2020 calendar.

This orange skyline photo caught our eye and we thought it a familiar sight for November and a good fit for the calendar theme ‘A Breath of Fresh Air!’

You can still view and download our 2020 Photo Calendar via the pdf link below.

We decided not to run our annual competition this year but we hope it will return in 2021. Keep your eyes on our news page for all the details.

Reduce the pressure

View our products that could help reduce pressure sores

We are proud to support the European Pressure Ulcer Panel (EPUAP) by raising awareness of pressure ulcers.

A pressure ulcer is a localised injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue usually over a bony prominence, as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear. A number of contributing or confounding factors are also associated with pressure ulcers; the significance of these factors is yet to be elucidated1.

Intersurgical provides two products that can help reduce the occurrence of pressure ulcers on the ear: the Intersurgical EcoLite™ face mask range and nasal cannula with ear guards.

The Intersurgical EcoLite™ adult oxygen range features an extra chin section incorporating two integral seals ensuring that the mask fits a wide range of face shapes. The mask's retaining elastic can be fitted either above or below the patient's ear depending on the patient's face shape. In the preferred below ear position it eliminates the discomfort and longer-term trauma created by elastic sitting on top of the patient's ears.

Our nasal cannula with ear guards is designed to prevent trauma to the patient's ears thanks to the soft silicone foam cushions, which are easily adjusted and securely fitted.

Visit our dedicated page to watch videos on the products features and benefits, and find out more about these ranges.

2020 Calendar Competition – October’s Winning Entry!

Nigel Parsons of Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust takes October’s spot in our 2020 calendar.
Nigel’s photograph was taken in Queen Elizabeth Forest Park near Aberfoyle, Scotland and perfectly captures the changing of the seasons. We thought this stunning picture was the perfect fit for the month of October and a brilliant representation of ‘A Breath of Fresh Air!’, which is this year's calendar theme.

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.

2020 Calendar Competition – September’s Winning Entry!

Michael Glowala of York Hospital takes September’s spot in our 2020 calendar.

Michael sent in his picture taken at the bottom of his garden and explained why it fit our competition theme ‘A Breath of Fresh Air’: “After a busy day at work, it’s great to come home and look at the view which changes every day – so calm and relaxing – can’t beat country living.” With the recent stormy weather, this image is the perfect fit for September.

New i-gel® Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine bibliography published

Featuring all known evidence on the use of i-gel® supraglottic airway device in a resuscitation and pre-hospital setting, the new edition includes even more adult, paediatric and manikin studies, case reports and a section on cardiocerebral resuscitation and passive oxygenation.

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, i-gel remains an important option for managing the airway in the emergency and pre-hospital setting, so the opportunity to review the published evidence for the device at this time is particularly valuable.

You can now download the PDF from the i-gel website and through the Education page.

Clinical evidence on the i-gel is also available to view on our evidence database, which includes all studies mentioned in both this bibliography and the standard version.

We hope you find the bibliography and clinical database useful in reviewing evidence published on the i-gel device.
