OBE for ODM Inventor, Prof Mervyn Singer

The newly published King’s Birthday Honours list sees Professor Mervyn Singer appointed an OBE for services to intensive care. 

Mervyn Singer is Professor of Intensive Care Medicine at UCL, Director of the Bloomsbury Institute for Intensive Care Medicine, and a critical care consultant at UCLH. Moreover he’s the person responsible for inventing and developing oesophageal Doppler monitoring (ODM). As such, all at Deltex Medical are absolutely thrilled to see him recognised with such an honour.  

Through the worldwide application of ODM, Professor Singer’s contribution to global healthcare is far-reaching. In fact over a million patients in at least 40 countries have benefitted from his invention. As a direct consequence a weight of clinical evidence proves that they have had significantly better outcomes following surgery. 

Professor Singer said: “It’s great to be recognised in the King’s Birthday Honours list. I’m delighted personally and also because of the huge contribution made by all the wonderful people I’ve worked with over the years both at UCL and UCLH.”

Deltex Medical CEO Andy Mears comments: “I’m thrilled for Mervyn. It’s hard to imagine that this award could find a more worthy recipient. I’d add that far from handing his technology over and considering his job done, Prof Singer has been an active contributor to its ongoing development, for which all at Deltex owe him a debt of gratitude.”
