Modern Vestibular Testing – Stretching Ourselves to Better Dx our Patients

As I stated in my (second) first blog post, one of the best aspects of my job is that I’m given the freedom to support Otometrics/Audiology Systems in a variety of ways, often via mediums that continue to stretch me as a professional (as well as an audiologist).   Sometimes it’s blogging with our fabulous marketing project manager, Milbien, and sometimes it’s co-authoring articles with a good friend and colleague.

Maggie Boorzananes, AuD, and I have authored a total of four articles together.  It’s been a very symbiotic writing experience as we have been taking turns being the lead author, and the other acting as a sounding board/editor/extra set of eyes to re-read a paragraph that you’ve looked at a hundred times and you just need someone else to read it or else your head will explode.  For our most recent collaboration in the May/June edition of Audiology Today, Maggie took the lead as she is our resident vestibular guru and most recently moved from our Clinical Support team into Product Management for our vestibular portfolio.  I had a chance to catch up with Maggie this morning, and she had this to say about our most recent publication, titled “Revolutionize Vestibular Testing: New Ways to Assess Patients with Vestibular Disorders.”

“I am excited to see this published because I think that people often think of vestibular assessment as a very strict regimen of steps to follow via the traditional VNG. As technology emerges and we learn to work with new equipment, I think it’s helpful for audiologists to see practical new applications of technology to simplify their testing.”

And finally, on the eve of this three day weekend, let’s take a moment (or two) and remember the brave men and women who have given their lives in service of this country.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!
