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

Summary of "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. Therefore, the aim of our study is to analyze how many impulses are needed to receive reliable VOR gains in difficult testing situations like testing children younger than 48 months and in children with vestibular loss.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Identification of SACCADES during a rapid head rotation to assess VESTIBULOOCULAR REFLEX.

A group of conditions in which HEART VENTRICLE activation by the atrial impulse is faster than the normal impulse conduction from the SINOATRIAL NODE. In these pre-excitation syndromes, atrial impulses often bypass the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE delay and travel via accessory pathways connecting the atrium directly to the BUNDLE OF HIS.

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)
