The vestibular examination included a Romberg test, gait and cerebellar tests, evaluation of spontaneous and semi-spontaneous nystagmus, the Dix-Hallpike
maneuver for postural vertigo, pendulum eye-tracking, evaluation for optokinetic nystagmus, torsion swing testing, and caloric testing employing the Hallpike
A test called the Hallpike
manoeuvre, where you lie on a couch and move your head in different directions, will confirm PV.
During followup visits, patients were evaluated subjectively by self-reports of symptom status and objectively by their response to the Hallpike
The role of endolymphatic hydrops in Meniere's disease has been a topic of much discussion in the otolaryngology literature since it was first described by Hallpike
and Cairns in 1938.
BPPV, first described by Dix and Hallpike
in 1952, (13) is the most common type of vertigo of peripheral origin.
The classic test maneuver and the typical findings in patients with BPPV were described in 1952 by Dix and Hallpike
Dix and Hallpike
described classic characteristics of BPPV in 1952.
Balance testing included electronystagmography, the Hallpike
maneuver, water calorics, and recordings of spontaneous, positional, and post-head-shaking nystagmus.
test was again negative, but when he turned from the supine to the left or right lateral position, he became vertiginous and exhibited a horizontal nystagmus for 15 to 20 seconds; the nystagmus was accompanied by nausea but not vomiting.
Otoscopy, tuning fork and basic balance tests such as the Dix Hallpike
(for BBPV), Romberg's and Unterberger's tests will confirm or exclude otological causes.
(34) concludes that numerous ethnographic studies endorse his hypothesis that short hair or close-cut hair: 1) indicates that the person in question lives under a regime of discipline to which she or he owes obedience and, 2) signifies that the subject was readmitted into a specific community.
