Dr. Saad Saad and the Invention of Magnetic Catheter Detector

Posted on October 3, 2018 By

The role of a doctor is to offer solutions to the society that has bestowed their faith on such doctors. However, not all doctors go beyond their normal line of duty to assist individuals to get a better life as they are either not passionate enough to do that while others lack the necessary motivation.

However, there is one doctor who has gone beyond the normal limits to make sure that all is not the same in the industry.

After working in the surgery department for several years, Dr. Saad Saad realized that there was a problem in detecting a catheter when it is inserted in the bodies of individuals.

A catheter is a medical instrument that is inserted in the bodies of individuals in anticipation that the body fluids will be removed from the body by the use of this unique medical tool.

The problem is that once it is inserted into the body of a person, it is difficult to detect where its head lies. This brings significant problems to the life of an individual because doctors use some methods that are not effective in identifying the catheter when it is inside the body. Some of the tools that would have been used would have caused serious challenges to the life of the patient.

One of the methods that are used in detecting a catheter is an X-ray machine. The problem is that capturing the position of a catheter cannot be done once, which brings critical challenges to the patient. Several X-ray captures have to be done. This continuous process exposes an individual to cancerous problems.

The next machine used in determining the position of catheters head is the Magnetic Resonance Imaging, which is considered to be not a very effective machine. It has also been recorded several times that Magnetic Imaging Resonance breaks several times which means it cannot be relied upon.

Dr. Saad Saad understood that it is important to understand the position of the catheter so that the medical procedures done on the patient can be professional and satisfactory. To make matters worse, the X-ray machine can cause some serious problems that could lead to diseases.

Dr. Saad Saad brought the electromagnetic catheter detector that ensures that the catheter is professionally detected and that all the medical procedures done to the patient are efficient. This prevents the incidences where other tools are used to detect the catheter hence resulting to serious challenges.

The two innovations by Saad Saad are expected to bring a great transformation to the medical industry.

They are aimed at restoring the hope for the patients by assuring them that surgical operations can now be done efficiently and effectively, without any worry of adversely affecting the patient’s health.
