About The book
Vestibular Testing Interpretation offers an easy-to-read and comprehensive overview of vestibular testing. Written with a trainee or junior practitioner in mind, this text couples an evidenced-based review of the most commonly employed vestibular function tests with cases from real patient encounters.
The book is divided into two sections: Section I provides an introduction and approach to vestibular testing, while Section II provides 27 clinical case vignettes. In the case of a reader who is just starting to learn about vestibular testing, the authors recommend going through part one of this book to develop a foundation of the basics of various vestibular tests and their uses. After the reader has a grasp of which test is used and why, it is recommended that the reader proceed with reviews of the patient cases. The book is designed in two sections so the background provided in the first half of the book will help inform the reader to analyze the patient cases. For practitioners who are more experienced with vestibular testing, the authors recommend consulting the first part of the book as needed for touch-up on topics. The primary utility for experienced practitioners will be to work through the patient cases as ‘drill and practice.’ The cases need not be approached in sequential order – they were designed independent to one another, so no intentional order is presented.
