DIAGNOSTIC CRITERIA for BPPV Vertigo associated with a characteristic mixed torsional and vertical nistagmus provoked by the Dix-Hallpixe test A latency (typically of 1 to 2 second) between the completion of the Dix- Hallpixe test and the onset of vertigo and nystagmus Paroxysmal of the provoked vertigo and nystagmus ( an increase and then a decline over a period of 10-20 seconds) Fatigability: A reduction in vertigo and nystagmus if the Dix-Hallpike test is repeated

Symptoms: Acute, spontaneous vertigo accompanied by ringing and pressure in a particular ear, with temporary decrease in hearing. Symptoms clear between attacks, but in the late stages (months to years of attacks) the hearing loss becomes permanent. Also, the other ear may become involved later. Mechanism: Swelling of the inner compartment (endolymphatic) of the inner ear. Cause : Unknown Treatment: Diet: avoid salt and caffeine. Medication: diuretics, Corticosteroid. Meniere’s Disease (Endolymphatic hydrops)

Symptoms: Acute onset, often following a flu-like illness, of severe spinning vertigo. No hearing loss or tinnitus. Recovery occurs gradually over a period of days to weeks. Mechanism: Usually an inflammation of a vestibular nerve, Diagnosis: Spontaneous nystagmus, no loss of hearing (usually), no other signs of neurological disease. Differential: Often confused with the first attack of Meniere’s Disease or BPPV. Treatment: Anti-nausea medications (Meclizine, Valium, etc.) for control of symptoms in the acute phase only. After that, they may interfere with compensation and recovery. A short course of corticosteroid and anti-viral medication often promotes recovery. Vestibular Neuronitis ("Acute labyrinthitis")

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
