Clinical head impulse testing (cHIT) assesses the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) by identifying compensatory eye movements during rapid head movements. Presence of catch-up saccades during cHIT is useful for identifying peripheral vestibular deficits. This slow-motion video (240 frames per second) demonstrates catch-up saccades bilaterally in a woman in her 60s evaluated for constant dizziness and multiple falls who had normal video head impulse testing (vHIT) findings, suggesting that a negative vHIT result should be confirmed with an extended window and high-speed video if clinically indicated. The patient was diagnosed with high-frequency vestibular loss on the basis of the findings.
