Dr. Saad Saad, throughout his professional career as a surgeon, has always sought innovative ways to build upon medical procedures to improve them. Currently, Dr. Saad own two potentially groundbreaking patents for medical devices. One of his inventions, Dr. Saad has innovated the functionality of the catheter. Catheters are used for the various reason during medical procedures. While most commonly used to allow the bladder to drain urine during surgeries, there are catheters that are used to deliver medicine directly into the body called central venous catheters. Central venous catheters (CVC) are very long tubes that are inserted directly into veins. A serious issue concerning traditional CVCs is locating the exact position of the catheter for both removal are correct positioning. Typically patients have to have X-Rays, in order to produce images the doctors can use to locate the exact positioning of the catheter in the patient’s body. Dr. Saad’s catheter solves this issue by enabling the device to be easily located. Dr. Saad Saad’s is a catheter, but it has integrated into the build a location device powered by electromagnetism. The integral electromagnetic materials work with an external device that causes the catheter to light up, making it visible. The surgeon has to simply move the external device over the area of the catheter, which initiates the illumination making it visible. Dr. Saad also invented an enhanced version of the endoscope. The endoscope a camera that allows surgeons to see inside a patient’s body without the need for invasive surgical procedures. With traditional endoscopes visibility of the camera is often hindered due to fog from the heat of the body in conjunction with moisture, which causes fog and liquids to build up. Dr. Saad’s endoscope has a suction and irrigation port and antifogging apparatus that eliminates the need to remove the tool for cleaning. Learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/saad-saad-524707159/
