Advances in Pediatric Vestibular Assessment

Presented by:
Dr. Sharon Cushing, Ph.D.
Dr. Violette Lavender, Ph.D.

In this course, Dr. Sharon Cushing and Dr. Violette Lavender present on the exciting topic of vestibular and balance testing in the pediatric population.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the prevalence of vestibular dysfunction in children with sensorineural hearing loss and its relationship to etiology
  • Observe the impact vestibular dysfunction has on balance, development and outcomes in children receiving rehabilitation for their hearing loss
  • Consider potential therapeutic mechanisms for the treatments of vestibular and balance dysfunction in children with hearing loss

Advances in vestibular rehabilitation

Presented by:
Dr. Kamran Barin, Ph.D.
Dr. Susan Whitney, Ph.D.

In this course, taken from our 4 day Trends in Balance event, we welcome Dr. Susan Whitney and Dr. Kamran Barin to explore the exciting and evolving world of vestibular rehabilitation.

Learning objectives:

  • Be able to begin to identify a person's prognosis in persons with vestibular hypofunction based on their presenting signs and symptoms
  • Be able to identify key questions to ask a person in their history that will help to guide treatment
  • Understand the difference between VOR adaptation and habituation in the rehabilitation of persons with vestibular hypofunction

Advances in VNG

In this course, taken from our 4 day Trends in Balance event, you will learn about the latest and greatest developments in the field of videonystagmography and how these advances in testing and technology can benefit clinical practice.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand how to perform saccadometry, including protocol set up, patient instructions, and test results interpretation
  • Be able to explain the frequency range of the VOR and the vestibular tests that are used to assess multiple frequencies
  • Be able to describe the clinical utility of ocular torsion and how it can assist in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with dizziness

Advances in BPPV

Presented by:
Dr. Kamran Barin, Ph.D.
Dr. Mans Magnusson, Ph.D.

In this course, taken from our 4 day Trends in Balance event, Dr. Kamran Barin and Dr. Mans Magnusson present a series of interesting updates on the topic of BPPV.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the latest manoeuvres available to diagnose BPPV
  • Understand role of torsional nystagmus and 3D head models in diagnosing BPPV
  • Understand the latest evidence on how to treat BPPV at the bedside and in the TRV chair

Getting started: ASSR

Presented by:
Amanda Goodhew, International Clinical Trainer.

This course provides an overview of the basics of performing the auditory steady state response (ASSR) test.

Beyond the basics: vHIT with Demonstrations

Presented by:
Dr Kamran Barin, Ph.D.

This course a covers the best practices in vHIT testing, including preparing for the test, identifying and avoiding errors, and understanding the factors that affect results interpretation. This course will take between 1 and 2 hours depending on your knowledge and experience, although it is expected that you already understand the basics of vHIT testing before taking this course. Learning objectives: Determine the best practices in pre-test preparations for vHIT Identify the errors that can occur during the head impulse testing and avoid them Recognize the factors that can affect the interpretation of vHIT

vHIT versus caloric test: Which one to use and when do I need both?

Presented by:
Dr Kamran Barin, Ph.D.
Dr Michelle Petrak, Ph.D.
Dr Cammy Bahner, AuD.

This course will focus on deconstructing the similarities and differences between vHIT and caloric testing, using case study examples to help participants understand how to include each or both tests into their clinical assessment. To gain the most benefit from this session it is expected that you are aware of the basic physiology, test process and interpretation of the video head impulse test
