Clinical Bedside Examination

Show Summary Details

Preview

The evaluation of patients with dizziness and imbalance is always challenging and often frustrating for both patient and physician. Recent advances in both bedside and laboratory examinations have made outcomes more successful and gratifying. Here we discuss how to apply the latest physiological advances into practical bedside examination techniques to probe the function of individual components within the labyrinth and central vestibular pathways. We also review neurological signs that can be used to differentiate between peripheral and central vestibular disorders.
