Patents of Dr. Saad Saad
At present, Dr. Saad holds the patent for the Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device.
Traditional catheters are insertions which have a various number of uses for inpatient and outpatient services. These are tubes which are placed inside the body to help with the surgical procedure or help relieve the clients of certain bodily fluids. Catheters also provide access to surgical tools, drain fluids during operation, and perform many other tasks which cannot be accessed through a fully open area. Some catheters are temporary in use, but others may be needed to be inserted permanently.
For a catheter to be placed in the right portion of the body, surgeons have to take note of its location. Since the catheter cannot be accessed openly, doctors often use an X-ray procedure to detect a catheter. However, these don’t go without risks as often pediatric patients are fragile and would be in danger if repeated X-ray procedures are done in a short amount of time. MRI machines are an option, but may also prove to be inconvenient because of its size.
Dr. Saad Saad devised a way to be able to detect catheters using an electromagnetic system. The electromagnetic system is safe, instant, easily portable and quickly located within the body. This saves time and reduces the risk of gamma-ray exposures brought about by constant X-ray procedures.
Aside from this, Dr. Saad Saad also has a patent on a different way of using endoscopes. Endoscopes are equipment that is utilized to view the patient’s body during a surgical operation. Dr. Saad was able to make a device that would provide irrigation and suction system within the endoscope in order to prevent blocking the view of the screen. Learn more: https://angel.co/saad-saad-2
