Summary Balance Function Assessment and Management, Second Edition with seven new chapters, continues to comprehensively address the assessment and treatment of balance system impairments through contributions from top experts in the areas of dizziness and vertigo. Designed for use in graduate audiology programs and by practicing audiologists, this is also a valuable text for those in the fields of physical therapy, otolaryngology, and neurology. Assessment chapters focus on ocular motility testing, positional/positioning testing, caloric testing, rotational testing, computerized dynamic posturography, and vestibular evoked potentials. Treatment chapters examine nonmedical, medical, and surgical treatments of dizziness and vertigo, vestibular rehabilitation, and assessment of and intervention for risk of falls. Additionally, this text provides background information on the vestibular and ocular motor systems with corresponding sample cases. New topics addressed in this edition include: * Development of the vestibular system * Central compensation following peripheral vestibular system impairment * Video head impulse test (vHIT) * Biomechanics and physiology of balance * Electrocochleography (ECochG) * Pediatric vestibular system and balance assessment * Effects of age on the vestibular and balance systems. An added bonus to the second edition is the video clips associated with the text
