Ménière’s disease is an unpredictable condition diagnosed in 45,000 Americans annually. A major, disabling symptom of Ménière’s disease is vertigo; this symptom is key to recognizing this chronic problem. Although knowledge of the pathophysiology and treatment is expanding from when it was first described 150 years ago, Ménière’s disease remains an idiopathic (of unknown origin) inner-ear disorder. Diagnosis and treatment is difficult. Despite these challenges, prompt recognition coupled with appropriate treatment and education can make a positive difference in a patient‘s hearing, balance, and quality of life. 


The goal of this educational program is to provide speech language pathologists with information regarding diagnosis, assessment, and treatment.
The content in this course is applicable to speech language pathologists in acute and post-acute settings. After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Identify the four primary symptoms of early Ménière’s disease.
  • Describe management strategies for patients with Ménière’s disease.  
  • Identify three tests an audiologist might perform to assist with the diagnosis.
