About Us

Deltex Medical is a British manufacturer of Fluid Management devices, which include the EDM and EDM+. Both manufacturing and Head Office are based in Chichester, West Sussex, England with subsidiaries in the USA, Canada and Spain.

Our goal is to make esophageal Doppler monitoring (EDM) a standard of care for patients. We believe that, in most modern health systems, it is essential to have a robust evidence base of both clinical benefit and cost effectiveness in order to achieve system-wide adoption of a new medical technology. Deltex Medical is one of the very first medical technology companies to have completed the investment necessary to build such an evidence base. As a result, use of EDM during surgery has the proven potential to deliver both clinical and economic benefits that are material at patient, hospital and system level.

The Company is currently in the implementation phase of achieving this goal in a number of territories worldwide and there are already over 2,800 EDM systems in use in hospitals globally. Distribution arrangements are in place in over 30 countries.

Deltex Medical has been awarded a NICE recommendation for the CardioQ-EDM, based on comprehensive evidence which proves that EDM Fluid Management can reduce postoperative complications and reduce length of hospital stay.

Company History

Deltex Instruments purchased Doptek in 1989. The two companies ran in parallel until 1st October 1992, when Deltex Medical was officially incorporated. The development of ODM1 was directly led by the MD thesis of Dr Mervyn Singer (now Professor of Intensive Care Medicine at University College Hospital, London) entitled “Continuous Haemodynamic Monitoring by Oesophageal Doppler”.

Developments in the Oesophageal Doppler led to the release of the ODM2 in 1995. This was subsequently followed by upgraded technology in the form of CardioQ (1999) and the CardioQ-ODM (2008). The CardioQ-ODM+, the world’s first fluid management system incorporating both ODM and PPWA technologies, was released in 2012.

In 2001, Deltex Medical passed the £1million turnover mark with sales of £1.3million. Deltex was floated on the AIM market in November 2001. Ewan Phillips was appointed as Chief Executive in 2009.

ODM technology has since received a number of awards and recommendations. These include the NICE MTG3 Guidelines, published in 2011, being named as one of six High Impact Innovations in Innovation, Health and Wealth (2011) as well as a recommendation by the Enhanced Recovery Partnership (2012).
