Air caloric with ICS Aircal - accurate stimuli without water
The caloric test forms the key element in the balance test battery with the requirement that the stimulus delivered to each ear be exactly the same. Research has proven that using air temperatures set at 24°C and 50°C creates a comparable response as water irrigation.
ICS Aircal heats and cools at a temperature range from 12°C to 50°C. For accuracy, the temperature is controlled at the tip of the delivery tube ensuring the correct air temperature is transferred to the patient.
With the superior delivery head, the tester can see the tympanic membrane, making it easy to deliver stimulus accurately. This unique design reduces the learning curve for clinicians who currently use a water irrigator.
