v-gel® Advanced Cat

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 soft material and design contours that mirror the anatomical airway structures of the cat. This delivers a clear and safe airway in under 10 seconds seconds and avoids patient trauma

The v-gel®, once sited securely in the pharynx isolating the glottis, not only allows lateral movement of the device (for good access around the mouth(), but makes aspiration less likely for safer routine dental procedures.
