Understanding Current Testing Choices for the Dizzy Patient - What's Best & Why?

55 Reviews

1 Hour  

We have the potential as audiologists to do so many vestibular tests but we are often faced with limited time to perform these tests. Use of Impulse 3.0 can improve efficiency, but many of these tests within the modules are not part of the “standard VNG.” This course focuses on reviewing what each test determines, how it is performed, when to use it, and how to interpret it, in the hopes of teaching modification of work flow to work smarter and not harder.
