Dr. Saad Saad Is A Pediatrician And An Inventor

Dr. Saad Saad has created to patents that are truly lifesaving to children all over the world. These two inventions are widely used by doctors all over the place and they are happy they were created.

 

The first invention is a suction device connected to an endoscope that allows doctors to not lose visual eye contact with the last place where the endoscope was inside a patient’s body. Endoscopes are little cameras that help doctors see inside a patient’s body for foreign objects that a child may have swallowed or possible problems. This not only allows doctors to see inside a patient’s windpipe or throat, but also inside their stomach, colon, and bladder. This device is quite useful but poses one problem. Because the body is full of fluids and such, the endoscopes get covered with liquid and gets fogged up so doctors cannot see anything. They have to remove the endoscope and then insert a suction device to remove the fluid. In the process of doing this the doctor loses sight of where the endoscope was last and they have to start all over again. This process can be quite time consuming and not enjoyable to the patient. That is why Dr. Saad Saad created a device that connected the endoscope and a suction device so that the doctor would not have to lose eye sight where they last left off. They can just seamlessly continue the process and shorten down the time it takes to do it by a lot.

 

The other patent is a a electromagnetic location identification device that located catheters inside a patient’s body. Catheters are a very practical device that has a multitude of uses including to drain gases, drain fluids, and help give access to surgical instruments. Because they are put inside the body they can be difficult to locate, so they use certain methods to find them. One of them is to use an MRI machine to scan the body to locate the catheter. Not every situation is ideal to use and MRI device because they are gigantic and very heavy. They other option to locate a catheter are X-rays. Now they are not unsafe to use but do expose patients to low doses of radiation every time they have to do one. Fortunately, Dr. Saad Saad was very aware of this issue and created a very portable and easy to use. It uses electromagnetic location to find the catheter. There is two parts to this device including an external and internal device. Once those two devices connected and the catheter is perpendicular to external device, the external device lights up. This is a way less invasive way to find the catheter so patients and doctors alike are thanking Dr. Saad Saad for his incredible device.
