Two new medical devices are about to hit the market that will change the way that doctors conduct simple procedures in a big way. “The Life Saving Medical Inventions of Dr. Saad Saad, Pediatric Surgeon” discusses the inventions of Dr. Saad Saad and how these little changes are going to make big waves. The devices in question could be described as tweaks to the overall medical process. Doctors have been doing these procedures for quite some time, and often a lot of the things they do are diagnostic.
The first device mentioned in the article is an electromagnetic locator that has been affixed to the tip of a catheter. Before going any further, it is important to note that a catheter can serve a variety of functions in the medical field. It can go into veins throughout the body and is not limited to the traditional understanding of what a catheter is for. Because a catheter can be so vital to the medical process, it is important for doctors to know that it is placed correctly. In order to ascertain its placement, many times that doctors need to get an x-ray of the patient to confirm where it is located. This can blast the patient with frequent doses of radiation, as the catheter is checked multiple times throughout the visit. Dr. Saad Saad wanted to find a way to limit this radiation exposure so he decided to track the catheter in the body using an electromagnetic locator and a small device on the outside. This small device can be transported anywhere and allows doctors to get an idea of where the catheter is in the body. It is a marvelous invention and will save medical staff countless hours while they are out working on the floor.
Another device invented by Dr. Saad Saad is an endoscope that has both suction and irrigation. This relatively cheap to make the device is the answer to a huge problem with this process. Usually when an endoscope is being used doctors are trying to get a look at a patient’s stomach, throat, or any other part of their digestive system within that area. Since this is the digestive system, it is safe to assume that there is going to be a lot of liquid in the way. This device helps get rid of that liquid, instead of the doctor being forced to remove the endoscope and insert option to remove it. It saves a heap of time. Dr. Saad Saad has been in the medical field for many years. He has served a distinguished career with the Saudi Arabian royal family and in the United States. This invention is just one thing in a long line of extreme success. Learn more: https://about.me/ssaad/getstarted
