The first ever supraglottic airway devices for dogs are HERE – and they are even better than you imagined!

Dog v-gel® Advanced. Supraglottic Airway Devices (SGADs) are widely used during human anaesthesia and resuscitation. An SGAD is an alternative to an endotracheal tube, used to deliver anaesthetic gases and/or oxygen to anaesthetised patients. Designed to sit in the pharynx, they avoid many of the problems caused by ET tubes such as laryngeal and tracheal trauma. They are also quick and easy to place and are useful for emergency resuscitation. v-gel® devices are the first veterinary species-specific SGADs, currently used all over the world in cats and rabbits. v-gel® devices are suitable for a wide variety of procedures, including dental work.

Same great benefits of the original v-gel® cat and v-gel® rabbit devices but BETTER!

Reflux/Regurgitation in Dogs during Anaesthesia

  • Reflux and regurgitation during anaesthesia is much more common than many people think as they are not seeing it!

    • Reflux – 16 – 55% (Raptoulos and Galatos 1997)

    • Regurgitation – 6 – 15% (Wilson et al. 2006)

  • Consequences of reflux regurgitation can be

    • Mild – oesophagitis in recovery period

    • Severe – oesophageal stricture, aspiration pneumonia

  • Gastric channel in v-gel® can be used both to detect and treat (by flushing) reflux/regurgitation
