But how have these inventions improved healthcare outcomes? We have examined each innovation to help you figure out.
- Electromagnetic Location Identification Device
In the past, physicians used X-rays to determine a catheter’s location. The method subjected patients to repeated radiations, and it delayed treatment during an emergency.
Alternatively, doctors used Magnetic Resonance Imaging machine. Just like the X-ray, MRI devices delayed treatment since a patient had to undergo the time-consuming imaging before surgery.
On that account, Dr. Saad decided to invent a solution that could be safe to use, and quick to determine a catheter’s location. His research led to the invention of the Electromagnetic Location Identification Device.
As inferred by its name, Dr. Saad Saad’s location identification device uses electromagnetic energy to define a catheter’s location. The invention is safe to use, and doctors can use it any time any place since it is portable. At present, the safe-to-use medical invention is under development.
- Suction-Irrigation apparatus used in endoscopy
In addition to the Electromagnetic Location Identification Device, Dr. Saad Saad invented the suction-irrigation apparatus that improve an endoscope’s diagnostic images. The pediatric surgeon developed the equipment after recognizing that physicians spent a lot of time cleaning flogged lenses in the event of an endoscopy procedure.
Saad invented the suction-irrigation apparatus which eliminate the hassle of removing and cleaning the endoscope and then re-inserting it into the patient’s internal organs.
The suction-irrigation apparatus are fitted onto the endoscope’s anti-fog port.
The apparatus’ suction system draws the fluids that clog the endoscope’s lens. On the other hand, the irrigation system sprays the lens with a cleaning agent to eliminate obstruction. Saad’s invention is practical in bronchoscopy, esophagoscopy, and sigmoidoscopy.
Dr. Saad Saad claims that he has used the invention to perform numerous endoscopies. For instance, he has used it to eliminate tumors, inhaled or swallowed objects, as well as stuck food.
The pediatric surgeon claims that his procedure makes endoscopy easy and quick.
Dr. Saad Saad Believes in the saying procrastination is the thief of time. He encourages everyone never to postpone whatever they can do today. It’s through great time managed that he managed to earn great success in his career.
He knew of excellent work ethics and exploited any time that he had. Success is a journey whereby strategy and time management matters a lot.
