Dizzy patients are notoriously difficult to diagnose as doctors require knowledge spanning several subspecialties, including neurology, otolaryngology, internal medicine and psychiatry.
This updated second edition integrates the essential information from these fields, providing advice that is both practical and accessible.
Beginning with two jargon-free chapters on anatomy, physiology and examination techniques, the book follows a coherent structure organized according to clinical presentations, such as recurrent vertigo, positional vertigo and chronic dizziness.
Each chapter is summarized with a table showing diagnoses and their key features, ensuring that the relevant differential diagnoses are readily available.
Access to more than sixty online video clips is included, illustrating bedside findings from pathological nystagmus to specific balance problems.
With practical advice offered for a range of difficult clinical situations, this comprehensive guide will enable any doctor to feel confident when confronted with dizzy patients.
