Throughout his career, Dr. Saad Saad was interested in improving the prevailing methods and treatment procedures. He was determined to reduce the pain and risks involved for his patients. As a result, he came up with two inventions.
The Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device was Dr. Saad Saad’s first invention. Medical catheters are used to drain gases and fluids, assist during a surgical procedure and other medical functions. Surgeons have to locate the catheter to place it in the right position.
The use of x-rays in finding the catheters had negative radiation effects on the patients. The use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) proved to be tedious due to portability issues of the machines employed.
This invention is based on avoiding the x-ray and MRI scans in locating the catheter. However, the use of the device has not been widely spread.
Dr. Saad Saad’s second invention is meant at refining the use of the endoscope. Endoscopes are used for looking inside a patient’s body without performing surgery or a scan.
Since body fluids fog up the lens of the endoscope, the conversion of the anti-fog port to a suction-irrigation device clears up the view of the lens. The device is practical and cheap to make which has spread its use worldwide. Read more: Life Lessons from Dr. Saad Saad, Pediatric Surgeon
