Normal characteristics of the ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potential

Age results in systematic changes in oVEMP measurement parameters. The test-retest reliability is acceptable, and reference contamination averaging 30% is guaranteed using a second infraorbital electrode as the inverting input (i.e., reference electrode) for bipolar recordings. The oVEMP can be used as a complementary diagnostic tool to the cVEMP in evaluating subjects with suspected peripheral vestibular disorders.
