Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs) are short-latency electromyograms (EMGs) recorded via surface electrodes from muscles in the neck or below the eye, in response to acoustic stimuli presented at relatively high levels. VEMP testing for normal saccular/IVN function, when combined with the right battery of tests, can provide valuable diagnostic information about conditions such as Meniere’s disease, vestibular labyrinthitis, Tullio phenomenon, and more. This Smart Note describes suggested electrode placement,… Read More »Acquiring Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials using SmartEP

The HL or Hearing Level scale can be used to easily compare the hearing level differences between test subjects in the same population category. In human populations, this corrected scale is usually determined by the acquisition of behavioral thresholds. However, in cases where the population being tested cannot interactively provide threshold information, it may be necessary to find the normal expected ABR hearing threshold using electrophysiological responses. This Smart Note… Read More »Estimating electrophysiological threshold using SmartEP
