View Course Details Please note: exam questions are subject to change.

1.  Factors that can impact the reliability of a cVEMP response include all the following except:
  1. Age
  2. Ear canal volume
  3. Muscle contraction
  4. Electrode placement
2.  In children, reliable oVEMP responses can be obtained by:
  1. 5 days
  2. 12 months
  3. 24 months
  4. 48 months
3.  The following are modifications for VEMP testing in children except:
  1. Use of animated cartoon to maintain a desired EMG contraction level
  2. Use of 1000 Hz tone burst stimulus
  3. Use of a sitting position for oVEMP
  4. Use of an ascending approach for threshold VEMP testing
4.  Modifications to vHIT testing in children less than 3 years can include:
  1. Use of a traditional goggle vHIT
  2. Obtaining fewer number of head impulses
  3. Use of a standard visual target
  4. Sitting independently to avoid distraction
5.  Rotary chair can be affected by:
  1. Middle ear effusion
  2. Height
  3. Muscle tension
  4. Neck length
6.  Benefits of rotary chair include:
  1. Common assessment of canal function for infants
  2. Does not induce dizziness
  3. Provides ear specific information about peripheral vestibular function
  4. All of the above
7.  The following are modifications for caloric testing in children except:
  1. Decrease caloric duration
  2. Complete monothermal irrigations
  3. Reassuring the child
  4. Allowing the child to keep his/her eyes open
8.  For infants and children < 2 years of age, the following vestibular tests are age-appropriate:
  1. Rotary chair, cVEMP, and traditional goggle vHIT
  2. Rotary chair, cVEMP, oVEMP, and remote video vHIT
  3. Rotary chair, cVEMP, and remote video vHIT
  4. Rotary chair, oVEMP, and traditional goggle vHIT
9.  The following can be used as a screening for vestibular loss except:
  1. Dynamic Visual Acuity
  2. Gait speed
  3. Severity of hearing loss
  4. Single Leg Stance
10.  Vestibular loss should be suspected in a child who:
  1. Sat independently at age 10 months
  2. Walked independently at age 17 months
  3. Could not stand on one leg for> 4 seconds
  4. All of the above
