One of the main factors that have led to the massive development of the medical sector globally is the introduction and adoption of modern technology in the field. However, the adoption of the technology and the constant innovations have not been achieved from a comfort zone. It has been due to the necessity that the inventions in the medical sector have been witnessed. The medical practitioners have been experiencing a myriad of challenges as they executed their duty of treating their patients. These challenges could only be attributed to the poor quality of the ancient methods of performing the procedures and also the slow adoption of technology in the industry.
One of the main challenges that these physicians have been facing is the poor quality of the endoscopes that they have been using. Endoscopes are gadgets that the pediatric doctors use to trace external objects that could have been inserted into the children’s bodies through swallowing or any other means. The devices are inserted through the body openings through which the objects could have passed, for instance, the mouth, the trachea, esophagus or the colon. The main challenge that is associated with this procedure is the presence of fluids inside the patients’ bodies. These fluids form fog on the lens of the endoscope hence obstructing the medical practitioners from having a clear view of the objects.
To curb this nightmare experienced by the pediatric doctors, Dr. Saad Saad has invented an endoscope that overcomes the formation of the fog on the lens, and hence the pediatricians do not have to keep halting the process while ongoing so that they can obtain a clear view of these objects. The invention by Saad Saad has helped a lot in the process, only that the new endoscopes have not been adopted by many medical facilities. This is because the manufacturing of the gadgets is quite involving and expensive and so the manufacturers have been reluctant in the adoption of the invention. However, Saad Saad, in the many operations that he has done has been able to experiment and use the machines successfully.
Another challenge that the medical practitioners had been facing as a result of the insufficient adoption of technology was the detection of catheters in human bodies. The devices that are designed to perform a couple of functions by the surgeons during the operations need to be placed inside the bodies of the patients and later their locations identified for further treatment. This has been a daunting task for the doctors since it’s quite difficult to locate the catheters. X-rays have been on the use to do this, but they have proved to be hazardous to the patient’s health. Dr. Saad Saad has invented electromagnetic catheters that are less harmful to the patients’ health and also easy to identify using electromagnetic energy.
