The Liberatory Maneuver for the Treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

2014-07-23 21:11:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is being done because the investigators would like to know how effective the Liberatory maneuver is in treating benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).

Description

BPPV is a problem with the inner ear that causes brief periods of vertigo triggered by changes in the position of the head such as rolling, looking up, or bending down. BPPV is presently thought to be caused by small pieces of debris or crystals becoming displaced within the inner ear. It can be treated by moving the patient through a series of positions called a maneuver. There are 2 different maneuvers currently used to treat BPPV by the clinician called the liberatory maneuver and the canalith repositioning procedure. We would like to determine how effective the liberatory maneuver is in the treatment of BPPV compared to a placebo maneuver.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Forced expiratory effort against a closed GLOTTIS.

An emergency treatment commonly used to clear food and other foreign objects causing AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION.

An illusion of movement, either of the external world revolving around the individual or of the individual revolving in space. Vertigo may be associated with disorders of the inner ear (EAR, INNER); VESTIBULAR NERVE; BRAINSTEM; or CEREBRAL CORTEX. Lesions in the TEMPORAL LOBE and PARIETAL LOBE may be associated with FOCAL SEIZURES that may feature vertigo as an ictal manifestation. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp300-1)

Idiopathic recurrent VERTIGO associated with POSITIONAL NYSTAGMUS. It is associated with a vestibular loss without other neurological or auditory signs. Unlike in LABYRINTHITIS and VESTIBULAR NEURONITIS, inflammation in the ear is not observed.

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
