Balance Function Assessment and Management, now in its second edition, 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 companion website that offers additional reference materials, such as video clips, associated with the text. Review "Up to date and useful as a reference for students as well as practicing clinicians in audiology, otology, physical therapy, neurology." --Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A (George Washington University), Doody's Review Service, (2009)(Review of the First Edition) "Despite the number of contributors, the text flows seamlessly as uniformity has been maintained in presentation style and language. ...

Banerjee (Middlesbrough, UK), The Journal of Laryngology & Otology,(2008) (Review of the First Edition) " ...There are welcome, entirely new chapters on the development of the vestibular system balance and vestibular compensation. A revised assessment section includes a new chapter on electrocochleography as well as an excellent introduction and summary of paediatric vestibular testing. Chapters on computerised dynamic posturography have been supplemented with additional information on biomechanics and the physiology of balance. Gone is active rotation testing and in its place a comprehensive chapter on video head impulse testing which includes a useful trouble-shooting section. Other new content includes a chapter on the topographical localisation of vestibular impairment with some excellent clear diagrams, providing a useful link back to the first chapter on anatomy and physiology. The chapter on psychiatric dizziness has been revised and renamed, detailing the contribution and inte
