One maneuver we can use to diagnose right posterior canal
BPPV is the right Dix-Hallpike Maneuver.
To do this maneuver, you have your patient look over their right
shoulder and lay back, supporting their head and looking at their eye
movements. We’ll stay here for about 30
seconds. If we see nystagmus, we’ll stay
here until the nystagmus is done.
Otherwise 30 seconds and then we’ll sit back up supporting your patient
and looking for eye movements as they sit up.
