Module Descriptions

November 3, Vestibular System Anatomy & BPPV Differential Diagnosis

Description: This one hour webinar will go over all pertinent vestibular anatomy.  It will describe nystagmus during evaluative procedures and its importance on determining differential diagnosis of central dysfunction vs peripheral vestibular dysfunction.  Nystagmus will also be used to localize the involved canal, determine Canalithiasis vs Cupulolithiasis, and denote the side in which BPPV is located.

November 10:Vestibular Disorders Beyond BPPV Part 1

Description: This will be a 2-part Webinar (broken into two 1 hour sessions) that will go over all non BPPV related disorders and other factors that can cause dizziness and imbalance.  Orthostatic hypotension, stress related dizziness, medication review, Vestibular Hypofunction, Arnold Chiari Malformation, Superior Canal Dehiscence, Acoustic Neuroma, Mal de Debarquement, Meniere’s Disease, Cervicogenic Dizziness, Migraines, and other CNS disorders will be covered.  Subjective history and objective testing procedures will be covered.   Evaluation components covered will include: BP assessment, Infra-red goggle assessments and special tests, oculomotor exam, neurological screen, cervical and thoracic spine evaluation, hypofunction special testing, Weber hearing screen, and VOR / DVA assessment. Critical synthesis of this information will be utilized to effectively differentially diagnose this challenging patient population.

November 17: Vestibular Disorders Beyond BPPV Part 2

Description: This will be a 2-part Webinar (broken into two 1 hour sessions) that will go over all non BPPV related disorders and other factors that can cause dizziness and imbalance.  Orthostatic hypotension, stress related dizziness, medication review, Vestibular Hypofunction, Arnold Chiari Malformation, Superior Canal Dehiscence, Acoustic Neuroma, Mal de Debarquement, Meniere’s Disease, Cervicogenic Dizziness, Migraines, and other CNS disorders will be covered.  Subjective history and objective testing procedures will be covered.   Evaluation components covered will include: BP assessment, Infra-red goggle assessments and special tests, oculomotor exam, neurological screen, cervical and thoracic spine evaluation, hypofunction special testing, Weber hearing screen, and VOR / DVA assessment.

Module Objectives

November 3: Vestibular System Anatomy & BPPV Differential Diagnosis

After attending this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  • Understand the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system.
  • Utilize the patient’s history to assist in dizziness classification and differential diagnosis.
  • Understand the various types of nystagmus present during evaluative procedures & determine the different variants of BPPV.
  • Know when to refer out for potential red flag central causes of dizziness.

November 10: Vestibular Disorders Beyond BPPV Part 1

After attending this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  • Understand the role orthostasis plays in the dizzy patient population.
  • Realize the role medications play in dizziness and balance reactions.
  • Understand how to differentially diagnose vestibular hypofunction.
  • Recognize bilateral vestibular loss.
  • Understand Meniere’s disease and the role of Physical Therapy.
  • Understand the presentation of Acoustic Neuroma.
  • Demonstrate testing and symptom presentation for the differentiation of Superior Canal Dehiscence from Anterior Canal BPPV.
  • Demonstrate clinical testing for Cervicogenic Dizziness.
  • Understand the role of the Cervical Spine in Migraine Related Dizziness.
  • Discuss the difference in presentation of Cervicogenic Dizziness and Migraines.

November 17: Vestibular Disorders Beyond BPPV Part 2

After attending this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  • Recognize the symptoms of Mal de Debarquement Syndrome.
  • Understand the positional testing difference between Central Disorders such as Arnold Chiari Malformation and BPPV.
  • Know when to refer out for further testing or imaging.
