Peculiarities of the VEMP test in children

Kalina Madzharova


Vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) is an addi-tional test for the otolith organs of the vestibular system. The VEMP test is relatively easy to perform and well-tolerated by patients of all ages. VEMP has been studied well for adults but studies involving children are insufficient. cVEMP has been successfully registered and reported for newborns aged between three and five days. oVEMP have been noted for children over the age of two.
