New York — Thieme has recently published the second edition of Vestibular Function: Clinical and Practice Management, a book that includes detailed information on dizziness and balance disorders, as well as essential information on how to establish and run a balance disorder clinic.

Author Alan L. Desmond, AuD, CCC-A, founder and director of the Blue Ridge Hearing and Balance Clinic in Princeton, WVa, has updated the edition with appendices of essential reference material and practice resources.

Desmond also offers a new chapter on fall prevention, as well as his advice for fostering the cooperation of audiologists and otolaryngologists when dealing with vertigo and imbalance.

"The goal of this book [is] that through familiarity with current evidence, the reader becomes more comfortable, more interested, more competent, and ultimately more effective in dealing with the dizzy patient," says Desmond, in the book’s press announcement.
