National group purchasing organization Novation awarded a new agreement to Intersurgical for its i-gel supraglottic airway management device, the company announced today.

The i-gel system uses a gel-like thermoplastic cuff to seal the pharynx and esophageal opening in adults and pediatric patients, a change from traditional devices that use air to create a seal using inflation.

The gel provides a softer closure that reduces risk to patients, especially for sore throat, dysphagia and dysphonia, according to a press release.
