Audio-vestibular assessment is important when assessing the dizzy patient. Baseline vestibular function may be established and used to determine if a peripheral, central or mixed pattern of vestibular dysfunction is present. A detailed history is vital, but in some cases this may be vague and audio-vestibular testing assists in formulating a diagnosis. Test results are then used for guiding the management of the dizzy patient.
