Blunders in vestibular and audiological testing

Timothy C. Hain, MD Page last modified: March 27, 2016 button Return to testing index

There are a very large number of possibilties for error in vestibular and audiological testing. The purpose of this document is to briefly discuss a menagerie of errors that we have encountered in both our own and other laboratories over the years.

Before starting -- let me first say that everybody makes errors (we are only human, etc), and that a small number of errors in a laboratory is to be expected.

1. ENG (electronystagmography) errors

2. Rotatory Chair errors

3. VEMP testing errors

4. Posturography errors

5. Hearing Testing errors

6. ECochG

7. ABR --.
