The catheter

 

 

 

The catheter is a device that is used for diverse function in the medical industry. Some of the functions require the tube to be inserted inside the body. The tube can be left in the body either temporarily or permanently. However, there is always a challenge with the position of a catheter inside the body. One needs to know its location, and the only way to do that is by tracking its position. Traditionally, an MRI Machine or X-ray scan is used to find its position. However, these two can be tedious and ineffective to the surgical operations.

 

 

 

Dr.Saad Saad looked at the disadvantages encountered when using the traditional methods and decided to come up with another alternative that would not need scanning. He created a catheter that has a location identification device. This catheter can be tracked without the need for an x-ray or MRI Machine.

 

 

 

With an external locating device, a doctor will trace the Cather inside the body with ease. This device by Dr. Saad Saad is critical in cases of emergencies. It is also a safe way of locating the catheter instead of the locating wires which are traditionally used by doctors.

 

 

 

This catheter is yet to be manufactured for mass productions. It involves a complex manufacturing procedure which manufacturers are still exploring how to go about it. There is hope that in the near future it will be in the market after one company from Utah showed interest in doing the manufacturing.
