Description: With the introduction of new vestibular testing methods such as vHit and SHIMP/VVOR & VORS, clinicians may wonder how these tests fit into their current vestibular test-battery and how to prioritize which tests to perform. This course will describe assessment workflow recommendations to improve efficiency and patient comfort. VVOR and VVORS has a valuable information in unilateral and bilateral vestibular hypofunction, and can contribute to the diagnosis of a peripheral vestibular loss as well as the affected size.
1. Describe what areas of the vestibular system the HIMP and SHIMPS, VVOR and VORS evaluates.
2. Assess which tests within a vestibular test battery are required based upon a thorough case history.
3. Describe how an improved testing workflow will benefit both the clinician and the patient.
