Overview

Previously known as the Vestibular Learning Manual, the Vestibular Lab Manual, Second Edition provides a review of all major of areas of basic and advanced vestibular evaluation. It is designed to be a systematic, practical application of theoretical knowledge commonly taught in vestibular curriculum of graduate audiology programs. The book is full of high-quality pictures of equipment, patient positioning, and outcome data.

Key Features:

  • Case studies allow the reader to apply diagnostic results to develop and strengthen clinical problem-solving and interpretation skills
  • "Guided Practice" and "Reflection and Review" exercises facilitate active learning of concepts
  • Spiral-bound workbook format allows for ease of use


New to the Second Edition:

  • Three new chapters covering:
    • Video head impulse test (vHIT)
    • Canolith repositioning techniques
    • Reporting results Effectively
  • Updated references, oVEMP protocols, and images


This easy-to-use manual is part of the Core Clinical Concepts in Audiology Series and is of great value to audiology students as well as an excellent refresher for practicing clinicians.
