A look at Dr. Saad Saad’s career

Cases of kids swallowing foreign objects have always been present since time immemorial. You’d be surprised to know that kids as old as the age of fourteen tend to consume objects that may cause harm to them. However, with experts like Dr. Saad Saad in play, you can rest assured that your child’s case will be handled with the utmost urgency it deserves.


Dr. Saad Saad, a pediatric surgeon and with a career that spans for over four decades, has been at the center of more than 1000 foreign object removal procedures performed on kids ranging from the age of six to fourteen years. In a recent interview with the Medical daily times, the renowned pediatric physician took the world through his journey in medicine and how he got to where he is today.


According to Dr. Saad Saad, one of the main reasons why most kids, especially at the age of two, swallow objects is curiosity, a factor that always leads to them being in trouble. He further adds, that if they are lucky, the objects will easily pass to their stomachs without causing any complications but if not, they end up being stuck in the food pipe or windpipe resulting to severe complications. Some of the most common objects swallowed by kids include coins, peanuts, hot dogs and even at times, batteries. Some of the most common signs that a child has taken such include troubled breathing, swallowing and wheezing.


In case of such instance, Dr. Saad advices parents or grownups not to try and scoop the objects with fingers as this might lead to further blockage. Instead, he advises them to offer first aid by holding them upside down and tap their backs or use the Heimlich maneuver to remove the stuck object. If these two methods fail, he advises that the child should be taken to the ER immediately where an esophagoscopy or bronchoscopy will be performed to remove it and eliminate the dangers.


Apart from just talking about these foreign objects, Dr. Saad Saad also went ahead to showcase some of the objects he has removed in his career to show the seriousness of these situations. For instance, he once dislodged an entire toothbrush from the windpipe of a fourteen-year-old child. Other objects include a locket, coins and even at one time; he helped remove a tooth which a six-year-old girl had swallowed while coughing creating a happy ending for the girl who believed in tooth fairies.


Nevertheless, it has not been all sunshine and rainbow. According to Dr. Saad carrying out such procedures calls for utmost preciseness which was a hard thing to achieve in the past thanks to the lack of the right equipment. In respect to this, Dr. Saad’s innovative mind came up with an anti-fog endoscope which has helped revolutionize such procedures, as doctors and physicians no longer have to remove the endoscope out of the patient’s body to suck the fog away as his invention does that while performing the procedure at the same time.

Vijay Eswaran Says You Have to Live With a Sense of Urgency to Be Successful

Vijay Eswaran is a well known businessman. He is also a coach, lecturer, and author. He has a lot to share, as he is the epitome of how a simple man can become rich & famous. He was once a taxicab driver, but he is now worth five hundred and fifty million dollars. Here are some tips that he has to share with us.

The first is to overcome your conditioning. You have likely been conditioned to believe that the only path to a successful financial future is to work at a nine to five job, and perhaps to attend a college and get a degree. However, that just is not true. You have to be able to believe in yourself and disregard whatever other people have been telling you. That is the only way you will be able to have the right mindset that you need in order to become a successful entrepreneur.

Another tip is to meditate every day. Vijay does this, and he says that meditating an hour a day is the furthest thing from a waste of time, because it lets him use his other hours at their maximum potential. He wrote a book on this topic, and he highly recommends that everyone meditate at least an hour every day.

Another thing he has written about is always thinking of yourself as standing at the end of the abyss. His book about this is called Two Minutes From the Abyss. You have to live with a sense of urgency. You can not keep pushing things off until tomorrow. You have to get them done today.

You also have to remember, says Vijay Eswaran, that it takes time to be successful. You can not expect to get rich overnight. You have to work hard and never give up. Too many people give up out of frustration when they are nearing a breakthrough point in their career.

Vijay is the chair of IQ Group. It is a giant ecommerce company that deals in various industries. Of course, Vijay is also known as a philanthropist who gives a lot of money to charity.
