v-gel® ADVANCED for rabbits gives a high performance alternative to using endotracheal tubes and face masks. 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 rabbit. This delivers a clear and safe airway in less than 8 seconds, avoids patient trauma and provides a seal enabling mechanical or manual ventilation.
The v-gel®, once sited securely in the pharynx, allows lateral movement giving the user good access around the mouth for routine dental procedures.
v-gel ADVANCED benefits
- Anatomical matching features combined with a soft material means pharyngeal bowl now envelopes the whole larynx and epiglottis sits inside – avoids folding of epiglottis and lingual congestion giving appearance of a “blue tongue”
- Suited to ventilated as well as spontaneously-breathing patients
- Avoids laryngeal and tracheal trauma, which means safer anaesthetics and comfortable patient recoveries
- Fast, easy, safe and stress-free insertions
- No post-operative coughing or gagging
- Low airway resistance due to the large airway channel within the device
- Each size more flexible in terms of size of rabbit it suits
- Tying rings broken dorsally and ventrally to avoid catching on incisors during placement
- High quality pressure seal restricting leakage of volatile anaesthetic agents, thus improving health and safety for staff
- Tip inserts into the upper oesophagus to help prevent and manage regurgitation of stomach contents
- Safer, smoother recoveries
