Muhammed Aslam Nasir MNNS, FRCA
Dr. Muhammed Aslam Nasir, a qualified human anesthesiologist, is the inventor of the i-gel supraglottic airway device. In 2016 he was awarded the prestigious Macewen Medal by the DAS (Difficult Airway Society) to recognize and honor his services to airway management. He is only the 14th recipient of this award and will join the Society’s most revered members. Dr Nasir aspired to bring the same underlying technology and benefits of the i-gel into the veterinary anesthesia sector and so we now have the ‘v-gel’ range of species-specific devices. Dr. Nasir is very active with his charities to support the victims of the earthquake in Kashmir, helping with flood reliefs, health, and education throughout Pakistan.
