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.

Vestibular function was evaluated through the cervical vestibular-evoked myogenic potential (cVEMP). The brain structures of interest that we analyzed were the hippocampus, amygdala, thalamus, caudate nucleus, putamen, insula, entorhinal cortex (ERC), trans-entorhinal cortex (TEC) and perirhinal cortex, as these structures comprise or are connected with the putative “vestibular cortex.” 18/4/2011 · Vestibular Function: Clinical and Practice Management begins with comprehensive advice on the function and dysfunction of the vestibular system, and how to perform a vestibular evaluation. In the following chapters, the author provides insight on the prevention of falls, and the treatment of vestibular dysfunction.

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.

The limitations of vestibular rehabilitation therapy are the overall health and function of the nervous system, especially the brainstem, cerebellum, and visual and somatosensory centers. The ultimate goal of vestibular rehabilitation therapy is reduction of vertigo, dizziness, gaze instability, poor balance, and dangerous falls; in some cases this goal is achieved without reducing dysfunction.
