This study compared two electrode placements (Sternum versus Mastoid) for measuring cVEMP elicited by air conducted 500 Hz tone bursts in normal hearing individuals. Fifty normal hearing individual with the age range of (18 to 25 years) participated in the study of cVEMP.The Results showed thatthere is no significant difference for both Latency and amplitude were found for both the sternum and mastoid reference electrode placement. This study demonstrated that mastoid reference electrode resulted in large amplitude and slightly late latencies when compared to the sternum electrode placement. Our data substantiate the possible clinical benefits of this position, but further systematic patient verification is required.
