Two incredible life saving inventions were created when one doctor found that “necessity is the mother of invention” would help his patent two life saving inventions. With over forty years Dr. Saad Saad has performed thousands of surgeries. A decent amount of the surgeries he has performed where out of the generosity of his heart. These surgeries were often life saving for poor children who could not normally afford these life saving surgeries. These trips where on medical missions in the United States and Jerusalem totally 12 in all.
These two patents have helped many patients and doctors. The first one has to do with tubes, medical catheters to be exact. Dr. Saad Saad invented a device that helps located catheters in the body. He found that the usual ways to find them needed to be made easier so he created a device that would do so. This device uses electromagnetic energy to match up with a device outside the body. Once they line up the external device shows a light. It is a great substitute to and doing an Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, or an X-ray. Both of these methods are not as easy to use. MRI’s are huge non-portable machines that in certain cases cannot be used due to their size. X-rays give patients small doses of radiation, but are not unsafe according to doctors. Dr. Saad Saad’s life saving medical catheter has helped many and is spreading in popularity.
The next patent makes it so much easier for doctors to not lose eye sight of their place using an endoscope to detect possible problems. Endoscopes allow doctors to see inside a patient’s throat, colon, and such with a snake like device without having to do a body scan, or even harder, surgery. Because the human body is full of fluid this makes it challenging to use an endoscope. Doctors have to suction out the fluid by removing the endoscope and then starting over again. Dr. Saad Saad invented a device where doctors can remove the fluid without losing their eye sight of that exact place. Learn more: https://www.healthgrades.com/physician/dr-saad-saad-ys6d8
