Vestibular evaluation & testing is an important way for audiologists to expand their scope of clinical practice (and consequently, their revenues). However, few practitioners have both the clinical and business knowledge to establish a successful balance disorders clinic. This book provides the fundamental clinical information AuDs need for managing the dizzy patient along with essential tips for running a financially sound business. The first edition of this book was praised for its brief and understandable explanations of measuring, evaluating, and treating the vestibular system. This new edition follows the same format but with expanded sections on basic sciences and specific disorders, as well as a new section on falls prevention. Contents Chapter 1: The Need for Balance Centers Chapter 2: Function and Dysfunction of the Vestibular System Chapter 3: Screening Tests for Vestibular Dysfunction Chapter 4: Establishing, Equipping, and Operating the Balance Clinic Chapter 5: Vestibular Evaluation Chapter 6: Treatment of Vestibular Dysfunction Chapter 7: Prevention of Falls Chapter 8: Staffing Needs of the Balance Clinic Chapter 9: Marketing and Financial Aspects Appendices Appendix A: Clinical Practice Guidelines: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo Appendix B: Dizziness Handicap Inventory Appendix C: Motion Sensitivity Quotient Appendix D: Rehabilitation Exercises Appendix E: Sample of Newsletter to Physicians Appendix F: Referral Slip That Can Be Sent to Potential Referring Physicians Appendix G: Samples of Newspaper Advertisements Appendix H: Elder Fall Prevention Act of 2003: VESTIBULAR FUNCTION.

The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that help control balance and eye movements. If the system is damaged by disease, aging, or injury, vestibular disorders can result, and are often associated with one or more of these symptoms, among others: - Dizziness - Imbalance - Vertigo - Tinnitus - Hearing loss - Brain fog - Vision impairment - Cognitive changes And more

Vestibular function can be documented using tests such as the rotational chair and caloric tests. The presence of remaining vestibular function can be used as a guide in predicting the final level of recovery for patients. 2,3,7 Patients with incomplete bilateral vestibular loss are often able to return to activities such as driving at night 12. Laboratory Testing of Vestibular Function. Laboratory and electrodiagnostic tests for vestibular function are useful, but often limited as they are negative in about half of the cases of peripheral vestibular dysfunction . Tests may be negative despite patients becoming symptomatic during the test or having clinical signs on examination.

Vestibular (dys)function in children with sensorineural hearing loss: a systematic review Int J Audiol . 2017 Jun;56(6):361-381. doi: 10.1080/14992027.2017.1281444. The vestibular system has strong neurological connections in the brain and is a major organizer of varied sensory input. This system is considered the most influential sensory system and has tremendous impact on one’s ability to function daily. Directly or indirectly, the vestibular system influences nearly everything we do.

compensate for a remote unilateral loss of vestibular function (e.g., from prior vestibular neuritis), but may not have a clear history for a prior episode of acute vertigo.14 Since nystagmus, if present, generally abates within a few weeks following vestibular neuritis, an abnormal h-HIT towards one side may be the only residual
