Word of the Day

head impulse test

A bedside test for vertigo in which the patient's head is bent slightly forward approx. 20° degrees and the head and neck are turned from side to side, first slowly, then quickly. The patient is asked to fix his or her vision on an immobile object during the test. If the patient's eyes maintain fixation, without any corrective saccades, the cause of the vertigo is likely peripheral and not from a central nervous system injury, tumor, or stroke.
SYN: SEE: head thrust test
