vHIT – half day

$495.00

video Head Impulse Test (vHIT) – half day (4 hours)

The vHIT, is perhaps the easiest to perform, most user friendly and non-invasive 
vestibular function tests for both children and adults. It is quickly completed within minutes and has the ability to evaluate all six semicircular canals. The presence of an overt corrective saccade is the hallmark of an uncompensated vestibular dysfunction and identifies candidates for Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) and documents outcomes post-therapy.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of the vHIT module, students will be able to…

1. Describe the physiological response of the VOR and corrective saccade
2. Explain the parameters of gain and phase with a differentiation of acute, active and uncompensated vestibular disorders.
3. Demonstrate competency-administrating protocols for pediatric and adult populations.
4. Interpret the test results from the test and correlate all finding into a coherent report.
