THE BEST SELLING BOOK ON THE TOPIC! "Balance Function Assessment and Management", now in its second edition, continues to comprehensively address the assessment and treatment of balance system impairments through contributions from top experts in the areas of dizziness and vertigo. Designed for use in graduate audiology programs and by practicing audiologists, this is also a valuable text for those in the fields of physical therapy, otolaryngology, and neurology. Assessment chapters focus on ocular motility testing, positional/positioning testing, caloric testing, rotational testing, computerized dynamic posturography, and vestibular evoked potentials. Treatment chapters examine nonmedical, medical, and surgical treatments of dizziness and vertigo, vestibular rehabilitation, and assessment of and intervention for risk of falls. Additionally, this text provides background information on the vestibular and ocular motor systems with corresponding sample cases. New topics addressed in this edition include: Development of the vestibular system, Central compensation following peripheral vestibular system impairment, Video head impulse test (vHIT), Biomechanics and physiology of balance, Electrocochleography (ECochG), Pediatric vestibular system and balance assessment, and Effects of age on the vestibular and balance systems. **An added bonus to the second edition is the PluralPlus companion website that offers additional reference materials, such as video clips, associated with the text.**

REVIEWS OF THE FIRST EDITION ================================================================== "Up to date and useful as a reference for students as well as practicing clinicians in audiology, otology, physical therapy, neurology." --Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A (George Washington University), Doody's Review Service, (2009) ================================================================== "Despite the number of contributors, the text flows seamlessly as uniformity has been maintained in presentation style and language...A must-have for those who truly want to explore and understand the clinical realm of the vestibular system...This text offers something for everyone from the novice to the expert nearing retirement." --John E. King (Medical University of South Carolina), Ear & Hearing, (2008) ================================================================== "All in all, this is an excellent book, to be used as a reference for ENT surgeons, trainees, and audiological physicians." --A. Banerjee (Middlesbrough, UK), The Journal of Laryngology & Otology,(2008)
