American National Standard Procedures for Testing Basic Vestibular Function
|Publication Date:||8 January 2009|
This Standard specifies procedures for conducting six separate tests, which, together with the data analysis and reporting requirements specified in this Standard, constitute the Basic Vestibular Function Test Battery. The six tests cover:
(a) spontaneous nystagmus (see 5.2);
(b) gaze-evoked nystagmus (see 5.3);
(c) saccade test (see 6);
(d) pursuit testing (see 7);
(e) positioning and positional nystagmus (see 8); and
(f) caloric testing (see 9).
Each of these tests evaluates a response of the vestibular system by the vestibulo-ocular reflex through the measurement of electrical signals generated by eye movements recorded by electrooculography.
