Dr. Saad Saad invented a device that can find catheters in the body with using the help of a scanning machine. Catheters are used for a number of functions including to help with surgical procedures and or treat medical conditions. Unfortunately to find these catheters the patient needs an X-ray which can expose them to radiation which is not healthy. Another machine doctors use to find the location of the catheters are Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI. They are not always practical being they are not portable and very large. This is where Dr. Saad Saad’s invention comes in handy. His invention is a device that uses electromagnetic energy to find the catheter. With this amazing technology they are able to find the catheter by an illuminating light that the doctors can recognize and is kind of like a metal detector. With his incredible invention patients don’t have to have a MRI or experience X-rays. Doctors don’t also have to utilize which are potentially hazardous and can break inside a patient. This amazing device is not used on a large scale yet, but it is only a matter of time before everyone hears about it.
Endoscopes are used to look inside a patient’s bladder, colon, throat, stomach, and windpipe. It helps doctors see what is going on in the patient’s body without surgery or body scans. Unfortunately the body is full or fluid which can hinder the lens of the endoscope. They have to suction out the fluid and insert the endoscope where they left off. This can be quite challenging though. Dr. Saad Saad created a device that suctions out the fluid with the doctor losing sight of their position. This cuts a lot of time of the procedure.
