v-gel ADVANCED Cat


v-gel® ADVANCED Cat

Airway Device

v-gel® ADVANCED for cats gives a high performance alternative to using endotracheal tubes. Located in the pharynx, a secure airway seal is obtained through the combination of a gel-like material with design contours that mirror the anatomical airway structures of the cat. This delivers a clear and safe airway in less than 4 seconds and avoids patient trauma

The v-gel®, once sited securely in the pharynx, allows lateral movement of the device, giving the user good access around the mouth for routine dental procedures.

New to v-gel® ADVANCED

  • Bowl now envelopes the whole larynx and epiglottis sits inside
  • Greater seal pressure – even better for ventilating
  • More space and security for dental procedures
  • Each size suits greater range of patient sizes
  • No short/long versions – sizing based on ideal body weight only
  • No inflatable portion – simpler to use
  • Single use – human medicine standards of hygiene
