This evidence-based course will focus on differential diagnosis, advanced assessment and advanced techniques for treatment of patients with vertigo from BPPV. This course is designed for clinicians with prior vestibular rehabilitation course work and clinical experience. Through analysis of challenging cases and lab practice, participants will hone their clinical decision-making and hands on skills.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Identify and differentiate between anterior, posterior and horizontal canal variants of benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo.
2. Perform the canalith repositioning maneuver, the procedure described by Kim and colleagues, and the procedure described by Yacovino and colleagues for anterior semicircular canal BPPV.
3. Differentiate between horizontal semicircular canal cupulolithiasis and horizontal semicircular canal anterior arm canalithiasis.
4. Perform the Appiani, Casani, and Gufoni maneuvers for horizontal semicircular canal BPPV.
5. Discuss the evidence behind the need for vibration and post-treatment restrictions in the treatment of BPPV.
6. Discuss the evidence behind the canalithiasis and cupulolithiasis hypotheses for BPPV.
