Patient with suspected benign positional paroxysmal vertigo (BPPV) may undergo evaluation to determine the health of the vestibular portion of the inner ear and to rule out a brain disorder as the cause of dizziness, vertigo, and balance problems. 

Question:  A patient with complaints of dizziness is seen for a vestibular evaluation. The physician completed the following tests: spontaneous with gaze, optokinetic, oscillating tracking, positionals head right and left, and Dix-Hallpike right and left. The physician also completed warm and cool caloric irrigations in both ears, for a total of four irrigations. All tests were performed using a recording device.
