Medical catheters are tubes that are able to be used for many different things. They are the tubes that are put into a body in order to treat medical conditions as well as to aid in performing surgical procedures. They are something that is able to give access to surgical instruments, to drain any gases and fluids, along with many other tasks (this is all dependent on what type of catheter it is). You will find that specific types of catheters are able to be left inside of the body temporarily or even permanently.
So as to have a catheter be put in the right spot within the body a surgeon will have to easily track the exact position of the catheter. Also, they will have to be able to see exactly the location that the catheter has been placed by making use of an X-Ray. However, this is dangerous for obvious reasons (the radiation that comes from having too many X-Rays). They are also able to do an MRI instead, but this option is impractical simply because the machines are not portable and they are too big.
This is the reasoning behind Dr. Saad Saad has made the decision to create a device that will help in locating the catheter without there being any need to scan the body of the patient.
You will find that the catheter that has integral electromagnetic location identification will work by making use of electromagnetic energy in order to figure out where exactly the catheter is. The tip of the catheter is going to have magnetically permeable material that is going tobe in the coil and the catheter is going to have some wires on the inside of it’s walls. All of this will allow the doctor to make use of an outside locating device in order to scan for the coil and the material.
