Video Head Impulse Testing.

Summary of "Video Head Impulse Testing."

The bedside head impulse, first described nearly 20 years ago, is the single most useful clinical test of the human vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR). The video head impulse test (vHIT), its laboratory counterpart, now enables the objective assessment of the VOR. We examine how the vHIT can be utilized in three common clinical scenarios: the acute vestibular syndrome, recurrent spontaneous vertigo, and chronic imbalance. Combined with vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs), vHIT enables assessment of all five vestibular end-organs by a clinician within the clinic itself.

Reducing the number of impulses in video head impulse testing - It's the quality not the numbers.

The video-Head-Impulse-Test (vHIT) is widely used to evaluate vestibular function. Nevertheless, there is no consensus on the necessary or ideal number of impulses performed for robust VOR gains. Ther...

What Does Head Impulse Testing Really Test?-Reply.

Human vestibulo-ocular reflex adaptation is frequency-selective.

The vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) is the only system that maintains stable vision during rapid head rotations. The VOR gain (eye/head velocity) can be trained to increase using a vestibular-visual mis...

Diagnosis and Differential Diagnosis of Peripheral and Central Vestibular Disorders.

The diagnosis of the various peripheral and central vestibular disorders is mainly based on the patient history (time course, type of symptoms, modulating factors, and accompanying symptoms) and a sys...

Used with articles which include video files or clips, or for articles which are entirely video.

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).

A form of interactive entertainment in which the player controls electronically generated images that appear on a video display screen. This includes video games played in the home on special machines or home computers, and those played in arcades. (McGraw Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed, v19, p223)
