1 Review
Most clinicians find it difficult to diagnose dizzy patients, as the potential causes span various subspecialties, including internal medicine, neurology, ontology, ophthalmology and psychiatry. This book offers a novel approach with chapters organized by easily recognizable clinical presentation, such as recurrent vertigo or positional vertigo. To orientate the reader, a table with differential diagnoses is given at the beginning of each chapter, including key features of each disorder. The authors' friendly approach extends advice on history taking and clinical examination, and each chapter ends with hints as to 'what to do if you haven't a clue'. Common disorders are highlighted, with brief coverage of rarities. Basic science aspects are limited to what is really relevant to the clinicians. A useful DVD shows the clinical examination, positioning and exercises for vestibular rehabilitation. With this book at hand, many more doctors will approach their next dizzy patient with confidence.
