electronystagmogram

electronystagmogram

 [e-lek″tro-nis-tag´mo-gram]
1. the record obtained by electronystagmography.
2. a test done using electronystagmography, assessing the balance mechanism of the inner ear. It involves running a cool liquid and then a warm liquid through a tube within the ear canal; the change in temperature stimulates the inner ear, which in turn causes rapid reflex eye movements. The movements are recorded, yielding information about the functioning of the balance mechanism.

Finally, we rarely have a pre-event audiogram or electronystagmogram that serves as a baseline, and most of our offices are not equipped for air caloric, closed-loop caloric, or rotational-chair testing.
