Dr. Saad has spent a considerable amount of effort on improving pediatric surgery procedures. He often challenged long-standing practices and sought upgrades of techniques to provide better services to patients while reducing the pain they experienced.
Dr. Saad’s focus on these matters resulted in him attaining patents for two inventions he made.
State Of The Art Catheter
Medical Catheters tubes with a variety of uses. They can be used to drain gases and fluids from the body, allow access to surgical equipment, and can also be used to treat medical conditions.
It is sometimes complicated to place a catheter in the right place in the body and to do so surgeons must have the ability to monitor the catheter’s location. Typically, an x-ray is used to monitor the catheter’s location but this can become problematic due to the repeated doses of radiation the patient becomes exposed to.
The invention by Dr. Saad is a device allows for the location of the catheter without the need to scan the patient’s body using scans. Dr. Saad’s catheter works by using electromagnetic energy in a way that is similar to a metal detector.
An endoscope allows a surgeon to view inside the patient’s body while performing a surgical procedure. While extremely useful, the internal fluids of the body can cause the lens of the endoscope to become clouded. The endoscope would then have to be vacuumed and cleaned before being reinserted.
The endoscope designed by Dr. Saad is equipped with an anti-fog port as well as a device to provide suction and irrigation. This allows for an unobstructed view of for the surgeon. The design by Dr. Saad has been so successful that all endoscopes are now being outfitted with suction and anti-fog devices.
