Identification and Management of Unilateral Vestibular Disorders

The course will review the features of unilateral vestibular dysfunction (excluding BPPV, which is reviewed in detail in other courses). Common pharmacologic agents utilized in the management of vestibular-related symptoms and associated rehabilitative implications will be discussed. Stable and unstable/progressive unilateral disorders will be reviewed along with appropriateness of vestibular rehabilitation. Content will include a detailed discussion of vestibular neuritis, anterior vestibular artery ischemia, labyrinthitis, Ménière’s disease, vestibular schwannoma, and superior canal dehiscence. The course will also include a question-and-answer session with Michael Teixido, MD. Indications for further medical management/diagnostic investigation will be reviewed. The course is appropriate for audiologists and occupational/physical therapists and assistants.
