Course Preview

Course Description

Caloric testing is by far one of the most important tests of the vestibular battery. It allows us to identify the side of the lesion when it is peripheral; it is easy to administer and not difficult to interpret. But consistent results rely on a good preparation of the patient, of the test and on following a correct protocol. This will all be reviewed in the class.

Learning Objectives:

  • To learn to prepare the patient for caloric testing
  • To identify important points to check for a good procedure
  • To understand the response and methodology for its interpretation
  • To identify and interpret the possible errors and artifacts
