Neurology Psychology

A Basic, Simplified Approach to the Dizzy Patient Part 1

Here is Part 2

Part 1 is on the top left of this screen (the smaller video) , part two is the bigger video on the right. I dont know why it is set up this way.

This lecturer, Peter Johns, does an EXCELLENT job summarizing the approach to these types of patients. I would recommend listening to emrap's C3 first since those go a bit into more depth about the central causes, but I don't think anybody explains the approach to the most common scenarios better than this guy does. Highly recommended. Also check out his emrap lecture on the same topic, with some more discussion thrown in there.

Another take on the topic by emcrit, who also has some great resources thrown in:
