Types of dizziness, evidence-based approach

Abstract

Dizziness affects about 20 % of general population and more then 30 % of patients. Thus, being important the problem has descriptive manner of approach and no even exact identification. Therefore, the problem of this presentation is identification of types of dizziness with instrumental investigation methods. The data of 849 patients has been examined with clinical tests, ECG, videonystagmography, posturography at vestibular laboratory from “Micromedical Technologies, Inc.” (USA). In 849 patients among other complaints more frequently then 10 % appeared to be: dizziness, subjective vertigo, objective vertigo, disequilibrium, orthostatics, kinetosis, acrophobia, agoraphobia, nictophobia, claustrophobia, ascendophobia, descendophobia, optokinesis, nausea, vomiting, headache, black-outs, tinnitus and numbness. Their difference has been instrumentally proved. It has also appeared that different dizziness types are effectively treated by different medications. Conclusion: we have to consider 20 types of dizziness.
