Balance Solutions For Doctors

For The Cardiologist
One of the most common symptoms experienced by cardiac patients over the age of 50 is dizziness. As the third most common complaint, the incidence of dizziness or vertigo is significant. Yet, an etiology (study of causation or origination) is documented in only 20% of the cases. The cardiologist is just one of the many specialists called on to evaluate these patients.

Determining whether the cause is cardiac, hematologic, vascular, metabolic, neurological or vestibular can be a challenge. For the patient, finding the words that describe their symptoms presents an additional challenge. When the patient uses words that describe disequilibrium or an abnormal sensation of movement, a vestibular dysfunction is likely. When there is vestibular weakness in combination with cardiovascular disease, symptoms are exacerbated. The fact of the matter is, vestibular imbalance is a common consideration in dizziness and imbalance that is often overlooked.

For the Internist
Physicians specializing in internal medicine often hear complaints of dizziness and balance issues. Whether in the hospital or in the clinic, the list of possible etiologies for dizziness is lengthy. Determining whether the cause is cardiac, hematologic, vascular, metabolic, neurological, or vestibular can be a challenge, often involving several different medical specialties. Unfortunately, in the outpatient setting, an etiology for dizziness is documented in only 20% of the cases. When there is disequilibrium or an abnormal sensation of movement, vestibular dysfunction is likely. Medications alone are not as effective as an integrated approach including testing and treatment of the vestibular system.
