Vestib.com - a free vestibular, balance and dizziness resource - Vestib.com is a free vestibular science, balance and dizziness resource for audiologists, physical therapists, and any health care professional or graduate student who works with patients experiencing balance and dizziness. This is a detailed, multisystem approach to understanding the intricacies as well as the big picture of maintaining balance.

  • http://www.vestib.com/vestib-system.html The Vestibular System - The peripheral and central vestibular system work together, and with several other systems, to keep objects of interest centered on the foveae for clear vision, and to keep the body oriented and upright.
  • http://www.vestib.com/diagnostic-evaluation.html Vestibular Diagnostic Evaluation - Vestibular diagnostic testing consists of a thorough case history, bedside, and laboratory tests. The case history is a powerful tool, as patient report adds significantly to sifting through the vast array of vertiginous and non-vertiginous symptoms and disorders. Bedside testing can supplement the case history to test assumptions and build a more complete clinical picture before commencing with objective test measures.
  • http://www.vestib.com/eye-movements.html Eye Movements - The vestibular test battery relies heavily on making indirect measurements of function through eye movements. Understanding how the eyes are mechanically rotated to hold an object steady on the fovea and the neural centers and pathways behind those movements is essential for expert interpretation of test results. Familiarity with nystagmus in its many forms, as well as non-nystagmoid occular intrusions will increase your effectiveness as a vestibular clinician.
  • http://www.vestib.com/brainstem.html The Brain Stem - Vestib.com is a free vestibular science, balance and dizziness resource for audiologists, physical therapists and any health care professional who works works in a balance clinic, or with patients experiencing balance and dizziness.
  • http://www.vestib.com/cranial-nerves.html Cranial Nerves - The focus will be on CN VIII (vestibular afferent information from the labyrinths), CN III, IV and VI (innervation of the extraocular muscles), and CN V (some non-vestibular related faintness/dizziness).
  • http://www.vestib.com/vascular-system.html The Vascular System - The vascular system is responsible for the circulation of oxygenated blood to bodily tissues. Because arteries supply specific structures, an interruption in the flow of blood leads to specific signs and symptoms. Thus familiarity with the structures of balance, their arterial supply, and common stroke syndromes can be diagnostically valuable.
  • http://www.vestib.com/medications.html Antiemetic and Antivertiginous Drugs - Antiemetic and antivertiginous drugs act to prevent vomitting and vertigo, respectively. This section will explain the mechanisms behind how these drugs work, give common use scenarios and contraindications, as well as shed light on common problems during vestibular testing when a patient is under the influence of such drugs.
  • http://www.vestib.com/contact.html Contact Vestib.com - Contact Vestib.com with your questions, comments, or suggestions for improvement. Your feedback, clinical stories, and visual image (e.g., de-identified test restuls, etc.) are welcome!
  • http://www.vestib.com/EOM-muscles-movements.html#EOM-muscles Extraocular Muscles and Movements - There are six pairs of extraocular muscles responsible for rotating the eyes. Oftentimes they work together, obviating the need to coordinate both eyes independently. This section focuses on the anatomy, movements and innervations of the extraocular muscules.
  • http://www.vestib.com/medulla.html#medulla Medulla Oblongata - In essence, the brain stem connects the cerebrum to the rest of the body; it does this through joining the brain to the cerebellum and spinal cord. The most caudal structure, communicating directly with the spinal cord, is the medulla oblongata.
  • http://www.vestib.com/antivertigo-drugs.html#antivertigo-drugs Antivertigo Drugs - Antivertigo drugs are used to suppress vestibular signals from the labyrinth, thereby controlling certain types of vertigo. Strong suppressants should be used with caution and for the short term, as these medications interfere with the central compensation process.
  • http://www.vestib.com/medication-table.html#med-table Commonly Used Drugs - The medications listed in the table are a selection of the most commonly seen antivertigo and antiemetic drugs.
  • http://www.vestib.com/arterial-supply.html#arterial-supply Arterial Supply to the Structures of Balance - The posterior circulation, or vertebral-basilar system, supplies oxygenated blood to structures important to the regulation of balance, orientation and coordinated movement. The major vessels include the subclavian, vertebral, posterior spinal, anterior spinal, posterior inferior cerebellar, anterior inferior cerebellar, basilar, pontine, superior cerebellar, and posterior communicating arteries.
  • http://www.vestib.com/disrupt-blood.html#disrupt-blood Disruption of Blood Flow - This section investigates the consequences when the flow of blood to the structures of balance is interruptioned. The differences between ischemia, infarction and hemorrhage are highlighted, and information about gross site-of-lesion localization is provided.
  • http://www.vestib.com/blood-pressure.html#blood-pressure Blood Pressure, Balance and Dizziness - Blood pressure readings consist of two numbers - one for the systolic pressure (the top number), and one for the diastolic pressure (bottom number). Problems with blood pressure can lead to orthostatic hypotension, a drop in blood pressure moving from sitting to standing, which results in light-headedness and dizziness.

  • Amazon Customer - Should Not Be Allowed To Be Sold

    Like nearly all of the reviews written on this item - it is terrible stuff! We successfully used Swifter wood floor cleaner for years. No cloudy areas, no pet scratch marks - we should have left well enough alone. Seeing the commercials on TV we decided to five Rejuvenate a try. Like the other users, it looked very good when first applied. Then reality set in - cloudy areas and pet scratch set in. Reading the other reviews it sounds like it is a terrible ordeal getting rid of this stuff. There needs to be a lot more product liability involving this junk and holding Rejuvenate responsible for a lousy product. We are going to see if there is any class action law suit that is up and running involving Home Depot and Rejuvenate that we can join in on - or start one ourselves. The idea this company can restrict their liability to the cost of the product alone is ludicrous - they have much more exposure when they ruin peoples floors! At least they should have a stripper one can use to get their crap off of floors.

  • Happy buyer - Take your old thermometer and stick it.......

    To be honest this is the first non-contact thermometer I have ever used so I have a little to compare it to, but that being said this thermometer exceeded my expectations.

  • Katie Miller - Thank you!!!

    Thank you for having this album, it along with the quarters I now have a complete collection of minted quarters thorough 1965. Again I want to say Thank You, Katie

  • Nancy Taylor - Excellent service and excellent shipping

    I can't believe it, my right hand that hasn't moved in years because of having late stage lymes disease is now making A FIST! It started last night and it's still making a fist today! I haven't made a fist in at least 12 -15 years! I'll call it a Christmas Miracle and BLACK SEED OIL! Amen and Merry Christmas and Thank You. I couldn't even wiggle a finger in years...and now a fist It's over the top! Excellent service and excellent shipping
