pediRES-Q Update! Nov/Dec 2021

Hello from the pediRES-Q Team!

Important Notice from ZOLL: Upgrade your R-Series Software!

The most current R Series® Software Version is 19.03. To check your current version, turn on your R Series and the version number will be displayed in the lower right corner of the screen. For more information about upgrading your R Series software, contact

This latest version allows detection and visual feedback on the CPR Dashboard for chest compressions down to 0.4 inches (1.02 cm). Previous versions only displayed compressions down to 0.75 inches (1.9 cm). The new version allows visual feedback for shallower compressions, as in those delivered to smaller infants, which also improves accuracy of displayed compression rate.

2021 pediRES-Q Investigator’s Meeting!
