65 y/o F w/ history of HTN presents to your ED with dizziness that began yesterday when she got out of bed. Her symptoms worsen with head motion, she is nauseated, and has vomited several times. ROS is otherwise negative. Her exam is significant only for horizontal nystagmus in right lateral gaze.

 

Her symptoms moderately improved with oral medications, and she would like to go home.

 

Yet you are not convinced this is peripheral vertigo. “What you really want is a cheap, quick bediside test to differentiate central from peripheral vertigo.”

This Wednesday Dr. Iris Chandler will guide the discussion, looking at the HINTS exam paper (view here).

 

View background on the topic here.

Emergency Medicine Lectures will take place at Yale on Wednesday, November 9th beginning at 9:00.

Clinical Practices Header

 

The subject of this Clinical Practices is the modified valsalva maneuver popularized by the REVERT Trial . Many of you may already be aware of this modification, as the study was published in October of last year. I’ve had a lot of success with this modified valsalva over the past several months during my Yale ED blocks and I want to make sure our residents are aware of this and using it for hemodynamically stable SVT patients. I’ve never had a patient convert with the “just bear down like you’re having a bowel movement” technique and I love having this standardized approach in my back pocket.
