HiNTS examen: Vertigo vs AVC posterior

TOKC Blog / Morning report 6/18/2013 - by jkhadpe
"What is the HiNTS exam?
A set of 3 tests used to specifically differentiate central from peripheral etiology in setting of acute vestibular syndrome/ AVS (rapid onset (seconds to hours) of vertigo, nausea/vomiting and gait unsteadiness with head-motion intolerance and nystagmus lasting days to weeks. BPPV is not in the differential of AVS, because, according to the authors, BPPV should last less than 24hrs).

Hi = Head impulse testing
N = Nystagmus
TS = Test of skew
