New ‘Vertigo’ podcast from Primary Care Knowledge Boost

Greater Manchester doctors Lisa and Sara talk to Consultant Otolaryngologist Ms Emma Stapleton and Clinical Scientist David Jay about Vertigo.

In the latest Primary Care Knowledge Boost podcast, they discuss the definition, differentials, and how to use information around timing and triggers to differentiate between the likely causes of vertigo. They get their guests’ take on the important details in the examination that can help identify the diagnosis, and talk options for managing the most common types of peripheral vertigo.

The resources section of the episode description contains excellent resources to help, including examples of how to perform and interpret the Head Impulse test, as well as vestibular rehabilitation resources for patients.
