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.
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:
“The progress made towards operating cash breakeven and profitability through improved consumable margins and reduced overheads made during 2017 was partially offset by a disappointing second half sales performance.
Since the end of the year we have put the Group on a significantly more secure financial footing through raising £2.0m additional capital and reducing our cash costs by £1.0m on an annualised basis.
We have seen a number of new accounts coming on stream in the US market, including a very major one which started using ODM as the result of a rigorous and successful evaluation. Our French distributor has been awarded the largest tender which we have seen to date for the use of ODM and we have continued to migrate our business towards our multi-modal TrueVue™ System on the CardioQ-ODM+ monitor. The TrueVue™ System allows us to refresh our market positioning and through the TrueVue™ System we have the possibility of guiding treatment for greater numbers of patients.
In the meantime, the largest ever randomised trial of our core TrueVue™ Doppler technology has been published with excellent results and very broad applicability for patients undergoing surgery who need to be protected from expensive, life-shortening complications. This is further compelling evidence that many of these complications are avoided through the use of TrueVue™ Doppler.”

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.
