Vestibular Education Course Sponsored by Interacoustics
Comprehensive Guide to Administration and Interpretation of Vestibular Tests

This course is for audiologists, technicians, physicians, and other healthcare professionals who are involved in performing and interpreting vestibular tests. Prior vestibular testing experience is not required, but we assume you have at least read your operator’s manual and have observed a few tests by a more experienced colleague.

This course provides a comprehensive guide to the administration and interpretation of vestibular tests. VNG testing is covered during the first two days and the more advanced tests such as vHIT, VEMPs, rotation chair, etc. are covered on the third day.

The course begins at a basic level and proceeds systematically through more challenging topics as each step in the administration of the test is discussed in detail. For each part of the test, tracings and video clips of both normal and abnormal results are presented and the clinical implications of abnormal findings are discussed.  Guidelines are provided to distinguish valid results from artifacts and to avoid common errors.

At the conclusion of the course, participants will learn how to prepare the patient, to perform vestibular tests and analyze the results. Analysis will include differentiating valid findings from artifacts, identifying abnormal findings and describing their clinical significance, and how to write an informative account of the findings.
