Abstract:

New diagnostic criteria are presented for grading the severity of acute motion sickness. They are more suited to clinical application as empirical evaluations than for precise measurement of physiological functions. The new criteria differ from the old in two important respects 1 moderate malaise, previously defined on an exclusion basis, has been divided into two categories and precisely defined, and 2 numerical scoring is optional. By holding fast to the definition of endpoints in the old criteria with proven reliability and validity, the change does not seriously affect the findings in experiments where the old criteria were used.
