Simplified Technique for Testing the Vestibular Apparatus, circa 1930s-1940s
Scope and Contents
A technique to test the vestibular apparatus of a man in his mid- to late 20s is demonstrated in this black and white, silent film. Cold water is injected into the man’s left ear canal with a syringe. Onset of nystagmus (rapid and involuntary eye movements) begins after about twenty seconds. Intertitles describe the procedure.
