Deltex Medical manufactures and markets CardioQ-ODM™ Oesophageal Doppler Monitoring (ODM) systems. ODM is the only therapy to continually 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 3,400 monitors installed in hospitals around the world and over 700,000 patients have been treated to date using Deltex Medical’s single patient disposable probes.


Nigel Keen, Deltex Medical’s Chairman, commented:

“In the first half of 2017, Deltex Medical increased its sales, improved its margins and reduced its costs. We are therefore substantially on course to reach our key short-term objective of moving through the operating cash break-even point. The Company entered the traditionally stronger second half

The Company entered the traditionally stronger second half with sales traction in its US and International businesses, a difficult but improved UK trend and the prospect of incremental returns from investments made in product development. The move from a single to a multiple technology platform increases significantly the Company’s marketing, commercial and strategic options.” (September 2017)

Business Description

Operating mainly in the UK, with subsidiaries in the Canada, Spain and the USA, Deltex Medical manufactures and markets the CardioQ-ODM™.

Deltex Medical’s CardioQ-ODM oesophageal Doppler monitor (ODM) changes the way Clinicians can care for patients having major surgery or in intensive care. ODM is the only technology to measure blood flow in the central circulation; it is highly sensitive to changes in flow and measures them immediately and accurately. ODM is simple to use and enables Clinicians to intervene quickly and safely, based on small changes in circulating blood volume and so, avoid the dangers of reduced oxygen delivery.

ODM guided intraoperative fluid management (IOFM) is a cornerstone of Enhanced Recovery; delivering better quality, more cost effective care. It means patients recover from their surgery faster, leave hospital sooner and in better health than they otherwise would do. Having established a substantial high quality evidence base supporting wide-scale use of its products on both clinical and economic grounds, Deltex Medical is working with leading hospitals around the world to introduce ODM guided fluid management into routine use.
