Integral Electromagnetic Location Identifcation Device Catheter
There are a number of functions associated with the tubes known as medical catheters. The tubes are inserted into the body to help with surgical procedures and treating medical conditions. The various types of catheter can drain fluids and gases, give surgical instrument access and several other tasks. There are catheters can be left either permanently or temporarily inside of the body.
Tracking the position of the catheter allows it to be positioned correctly. In the past X-rays or MRIs were used for and the dangers of repeatedly having these procedures done is why Dr. Saad Saad created a catheter that does not require an additional machine to locate it inside of the body. The catheter Dr. Saad designed uses electromagnetic energy for locating it. The tip of the catheter holds the material for locating it allowing a doctor to use a locating device to scan the body and receive a signal of where the catheter is. The device works similar to a metal detector in addition to being portable and practical.
Irrigation and Suction Apparatus for the Endoscope
Endoscope use improvement was the idea behind the second invention from Dr. Saad. The Endoscope is used to look into various parts of the body such as colon, windpipe, bladder, throat and stomach to provide a visual of what is happening inside the body without a more invasive procedure. The endoscope can be fogged by liquids in the body which is the reason for the suction capability that Dr. Saad patented for it.
