Publisher Synopsis

This would be a brilliant read for medical students and primary care physicians. The simplified, common-sense approach, I found, made it compulsive reading, in a subject where that is the Read more...

    schema:description ""Drs. Gregory Whitman, an otoneurologist, and Robert Baloh, a neurologist, have written a remarkably readable and compassionate book for anyone who has dizziness, whether acutely, episodically, or chronically. Their book describes the conditions that cause dizziness and explains what people with dizziness can do to feel better. For older people especially, addressing dizziness means a better chance of avoiding a fall and retaining independence. The authors begin by explaining why it's important to overcome dizziness and describing how dizziness is diagnosed and treated. They then describe two conditions--benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and orthostatic hypotension--which cause dizzy spells when a person changes position. Next are the causes of dizzy spells that happen in attacks and without any trigger, most prominently Meniere's disease and migraine-associated dizziness. The third part of the book is for people who have a single bout of dizziness that lasts for days and then gradually improves, generally brought on by either vestibular neuritis or stroke and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs). Finally, the authors explore the causes of constant dizziness that lasts for days, months, and even years. These are anxiety, Mal de debarquement Syndrome, dizziness due to loss of function in both ears, and small vessel ischemic disease. An Appendix offers advice about home exercises for dizziness, and a Glossary defines terms. This book stands to become the definitive consumer health book on this topic. With the aging of the population, dizziness will become a more common problem, so the book may also be of interest and use to primary care providers"--"@en ;
    schema:description ""Anyone who has experienced the sensation of the room spinning around or the lightheadedness that signals an impending faint knows how bad it feels to be dizzy. Almost any medical condition can cause dizziness, but the most common include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, transient drops in blood pressure, migraine, and anxiety. Inner ear disorders that cause dizziness are often associated with abnormal eye movements--in fact, it's possible to diagnose an acute inner ear infection in five seconds, just by looking at a person's eyes. In Dizziness, Drs. Gregory T. Whitman and Robert W. Baloh explore the different conditions that can cause dizziness, describe the types of dizziness they see most frequently, and explain what people with dizziness can do to feel better. A detailed look at one of the most common--and complex--medical complaints, Dizziness distills Drs. Whitman and Baloh's six decades of combined experience into a short and practical guide. Packed with useful tips on diagnosis and treatment, Dizziness reveals how top doctors analyze dizziness, including the problems with balance and walking that go along with it. The book also explains the importance of overcoming dizziness and describes what people who are dizzy can do to get an accurate diagnosis. Combining background on specific forms of dizziness with descriptions of optimal treatments for each one, Dizziness covers everything from conditions that cause dizziness when a person changes position (such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and orthostatic hypotension) to conditions that cause dizzy spells without warning or trigger (such as Meniere's disease and migraine-associated dizziness). The book explores bouts of dizziness that last for days, as well as constant dizziness that lasts for weeks, months, or even years. Enhanced with patient stories and rounded out by a glossary of terms and an appendix describing home exercises, this is the go-to book for anyone who struggles with dizziness"--"@en ;
