Summary:

Vertigo is the major, disabling symptom in Meniere’s disease, which is an unpredictable condition diagnosed in 45,000 Americans annually. Vertigo is the key symptom when recognizing this chronic problem. Although more is known about its pathophysiology and treatment than when it was first described 150 years ago, Meniere’s disease remains an idiopathic (of unknown origin) inner-ear disorder. Diagnosis and treatment is difficult, stymied by trial and error. Despite these challenges, prompt recognition by an audiologist coupled with appropriate treatment and education can make a positive difference in a patient’s hearing, balance, and quality of life.

Objectives:

The purpose of this Meniere’s disease continuing education module is to provide audiologists with information regarding what is known about Meniere’s disease, patient assessment, and patient care. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify the four main symptoms of early Meniere’s disease
  • Identify the course of Meniere’s disease
  • Describe management strategies for patients with Meniere’s disease

Very detailed and informative. I like how the author went into sensitivity and specificity of testing. Including the exacerbating factors was helpful as well.

I enjoyed learning about this disease. We touched on it briefly during college in audiology class, but I learned much more information from this course.
