    Not sure why they haven't posted the upgrade changes with the 1.5.1 upgrade.  Almost all software designers always post the changes when releasing an update.  I haven't been able to find any document.

     2 things are the inclusion of ETCO2 Waveform and a screen were you can turn off selected waveforms on your patient monitor.

    I am using the Megacode Kelly Advanced and the ETCO2 is very bitter sweet.  I was elated when I saw the ETCO2 waveform capnography.  Extremely disappointed to find out it will not give you a waveform during any situation where you have no BP ..... VF, VT, PEA, Asystole.   one of the main thrusts of the new guidelines is to use ETCO2 with adv airway and compressions..... This is a huge part of using ETCO2 when teaching ACLS, ALS.... I called tech service at Laerdal USA , the first tech had no clue..... wouldn't/couldn't escalate my question because he could not find my account...

    Also, now I am having some issues with the simpad becoming unresponsive for 5 to 10 seconds during the class senario.... tech didn't know anything about that either.  I would still upgrade regardless since it doesn't happen that frequently.

    I would be nice for laerdal to address some of these issues.
