This will allow patients to be more directly treated, without requiring unnecessary referrals or full vestibular testing, and will be especially useful in primary care settings or heavily overloaded otolaryngology or neurology departments.
Results A total of patients participated in the study. The tendency to refer patients and to order routine imaging or vestibular tests varies across different settings.
However, at least in this initial study, the APCCAM appears to be a sensitive and specific tool that can identify the leading and most easily solvable cause of vertigo, BPPV, using a maneuver that can be easily taught and that requires only a backed chair. We decided to evaluate two independent positive results as potential diagnostic criteria supporting pc-BPPV:.

Then, after a change in head position in the plane of the affected canal, gravity induces the trapped otoconia to move, resulting in abnormal endolymph flow and the subsequent deflection of the cupula in cases of canalolithiasis or direct cupular deflection in cases of cupulolithiasis.
Dix–Hallpike test – Wikipedia
From a frontal perspective, this is perceived as a mixed vertical and torsional nystagmus. Such patients include those who are too anxious about eliciting the uncomfortable symptoms of vertigo, and those who may not have the range of motion necessary to comfortably be in a supine position.
However, as described above, these can be very frequent, which mwniobra lead to delays in the diagnosis and treatment of simple cases of BPPV. The exclusion criteria included severe neck, ophthalmological, or neurological pathology, previously known vestibular disorders, or the presence of spontaneous nystagmus. In this position, the pupil is near the fix of rotation, therefore isolating the torsional component.

An Abbreviated Diagnostic Maneuver for Posterior Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo
Patients may be too tense, for fear of producing vertigo symptoms, which can prevent the necessary brisk passive movements for the test. For some patients, this maneuver may not be indicated and a modification may be needed that also targets the posterior semicircular canal. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is the most frequent cause of vertigo, with a lifetime prevalence of 2. In support of its use, we have chosen to provide a detailed explanation of the mechanisms and principles that are involved in canal alignment, which underlies the effects of the APCCAM that are described in the introductory segment of this article.
An appointment for vestibular testing including complete positional testing was then scheduled. Patients should address specific medical concerns with their physicians.
