Endoscopes help find possible problems without taking more serious measures like surgery or a body scan. Both can be very costly and may not be necessary. Endoscopes give doctors the access to look inside a patient’s colon, bladder, and stomach. They can see inside the throat and even windpipe. This can save a lot of time and money, but has a unfortunate downside. Because the endoscope has to enter the body it can get the screen can get fogged up and covered with the liquids that naturally habitat the body. Doctors then have to remove the endoscope to then insert a suction device to remove the liquids, then start the process all over again. Dr. Saad Saad patented a device that suctions out the fluids without removing the device so the doctor does not lose eye contact where they left off. They other device helps locate medical catheters without an MRI or X-ray. It is an electromagnetic device to help locate the catheter. It is a safer and easier option than the other two.
