In this podcast, Dr Thomas Round, EKU Clinical Lead, talks to Dr Devina Maru, a GP Speciality Registrar in Greenwich with a special interest in ENT and audiology and RCGP National Clinical Champion for hearing loss, about sudden onset dizziness and vertigo. Their discussion includes the definition of dizziness and its associated symptoms, how common it is, causes of dizziness and vertigo, testing (such as the HINTs, Dix Hallpike, Romberg's, Weber's and Rinnes tests and the Epley manoeuvre) and management.
