Vestibular Lab Manual
Bre Lynn Myers
Details: 170 pages, B&W, Spiral Bound, 8.5" x 11"
A Volume in the Core Clinical Concepts in Audiology Series.
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.
- 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.
"*The book is divided into chapters based on specific diagnostic tests used in a vestibular evaluation, and each chapter concludes with specific clinical exercises to be performed, as well as questions regarding the tests. There are also brief sections on canolith repositioning and vestibular rehabilitation.
The purpose is to give a succinct overview of diagnostic and rehabilitative vestibular audiology, with a focus on active learning of concepts. This is accomplished quite well in the book, as each chapter devotes a brief space to the overview and rationale of the test, and then quickly moves into specific exercises designed to assist students and clinicians in becoming more comfortable with diagnostic procedures commonly used in vestibular clinics. The "Guided Practice" sections at the end of each chapter have detailed instructions to complete exercises, and the "Reflection and Review" sections that follow ask readers to integrate the information learned in each chapter with the overall picture. This book would potentially be very useful in clinical settings, as clinicians would not have to spend significant time searching through lengthy books for assistance with a specific issue or question."

"Each chapter is clear and concise, describing each diagnostic test with a brief rationale for each test, moving through to practical exercises and reflective learning. Chapters are designed to engage the student or clinician in approximately one-hour focused sessions around core concepts, the author sign-posts the reader to more comprehensive resources for more in-depth information.
It is full of active learning opportunities by the author, giving examples of case studies as well as guided practice exercises. The guided practice provides an excellent basis for applying learnt theoretic knowledge to the clinical environment, effectively fulfilling its intention to ‘give practical guidance and confidence to students and clinicians.’
This book is an up-to date, effective and easy-to-use resource to guide learning of a complex subject. In my view, it is of great value to those new to vestibular assessment or to those who would like to refresh their knowledge. I would strongly recommend this book as it delivers on its goals, giving it a 5-star rating."
