Deltex Medical manufactures and markets CardioQ-ODM™ Oesophageal Doppler Monitoring (ODM) systems. ODM is the only therapy to measure blood flow in the central circulation in real time. Minimally invasive, easy to set up and quick to focus, the technology generates a low-frequency ultrasound signal, which is highly sensitive to changes in flow and measures them immediately. Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs), using Doppler, have demonstrated that early fluid management intervention can reduce postoperative complications, reduce intensive care admissions and reduce the length of hospital stay.

Our Goal

ODM is increasingly recognised as a standard of care for patients undergoing major surgery and in critical care. The broader clinical area of haemodynamic management of which ODM is a core constituent is also now becoming widely accepted as an important major new medical modality. Consequently, the Company’s focus is on maximising value from the opportunities presented as enhanced haemodynamic management is adopted into routine clinical practice around the world.

The Company is currently in the implementation phase of achieving this goal in a number of territories worldwide, operating directly in the UK, USA, Spain and Canada and through distribution arrangements in a further 30 countries. There are over 3,200 monitors installed in hospitals around the world and over 650,000 patients have been treated to date using Deltex Medical’s single patient disposable probes.

 

Nigel Keen, Deltex Medical’s Chairman, commented:

“Deltex entered the second half of 2016 with growing traction and sales in the US market along with continued growth and momentum in our other export markets. Maintaining these established trends will see the Group return to growth despite the challenging UK domestic market. Moreover, Deltex has already done much of the work to create opportunities both for more rapid growth in the USA and other export markets and to stabilise our UK business. The growing sales traction, in the US and internationally, together with cost reductions already made, completed investment in margin improvement programmes and well advanced product development plans, mean the Group is making good progress towards its key objective of moving through the operating cash break-even point.” (September 2016)
