Description

This course will walk you through a videonystagmography (VNG) appointment with a patient. It is designed to show you an example of how you can interact with your dizzy patients and what normal and abnormal results look like on screen. You will explore the basics and fundamentals of performing VNG testing for vestibular assessments, including how to use VNG goggles, which subtests are found within the VNG test battery and how to make a basic interpretation of the test results. This course will be useful to those who are new to VNG testing and who want to see what a VNG test appointment consists of.
