Vestibular Tests: Right Dix Hallpike Maneuver

  • 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.
