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.
