Electromagnetic location device
When Dr. Saad Saad set out to change the medical industry, he came up with two inventions. The first one who was the creation of an electromagnetic location identification device which could be used to locate the position of a catheter inserted inside the body. The catheter is one of the most useful tools for a surgeon since it can be used for a number of applications. They are commonly used to drain fluids and gases from the body. For some reasons, the catheter might be left inside the body. This can happen either temporarily or permanently. When a patient is seeking medical attention, the position of the catheter might be a concern to the physician.
Traditionally, physicians use an x-ray or MRI machine scanner to identify the location of the catheter. These two methods are however not efficient since they cannot be used in times of emergencies and also expose the patient to electromagnetic rays which might not be healthy when done multiple times. Dr. Saad Saad created the electromagnetic device so that the catheter could be identified without the need of a body scan.
Endoscope with a suction system
The other invention that Dr. Saad had made was an improvement to the traditional endoscope. One of the main challenges that physicians faced when using the endoscope is that the presence of body fluids hampers the visibility of the internal body organs. Dr. Saad Saad decided that he would create a suction system that would absorb body fluids from the area under investigation.
