Diagnosis by simultaneous caloric stimulation of the two vestibular organs


Differing irritability of the two vestibular organs is quickly established by simultaneous caloric stimulation. It produces distinguished nystagmus, beating to the opposite direction, if temperature is changed from 30–44° C. Above method requires the use of a special appliance for exact symmetrical stimulation. The method gives qualitative results. Accordingly it is not able, to substitute the commonly used independent caloric stimulation.
