  1. Application of Course Knowledge: Compare and contrast the assigned topics in your initial discussion post. The goal of this assignment goes beyond simply listing information for each disease; it requires a careful examination of both disorders with a thoughtful discussion of both the similarities and the differences of each. Consider the clinical presentation of each client to the office. Describe their clinical presentation and how their history would impact their diagnosis.

    Address each of the following components using your own words:

    1. Presentation:Demographics, onset of symptoms, history of present illness, associated risk factors
    2. Pathophysiology:Similarities and differences in pathophysiology
    3. Assessment:Physical assessment techniques, appropriate diagnostic testing
    4. Diagnosis:Additional differential diagnoses to consider, positive findings for each diagnosis
    5. Management:Similarities and differences in pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatments, client education, referral, and follow-up care



Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is among the most prevalent causes of vertigo, the sudden sensation that one is spinning or the inner is spinning (You et al., 2019). BPPV causes brief mid to intense dizziness episodes and is often precipitated by specific changes to the position of the head e.g. tipping the head up or down, lying down, sitting up in bed, or turning over. On the other hand, Meniere’s disease (MD) is an inner ear disorder that leads to vertigo (dizzy spells) and loss of hearing, mostly in one ear (Schaaf, 2021). It affects any age but its onset is typically between young and middle-aged adults. MD is a chronic condition but can be managed using symptoms. Considering symptoms, a patient with BPPV may present with dizziness, vertigo, nausea, vomiting, and unsteadiness/ loss of balance. Early BPPV signs and symptoms last less than a minute and may disappear and recur after some time. Abnormal rhythmic eye movements are also often present with BPPV symptoms (Kim et al., 2021). A patient with MD presents with recurring vertigo episodes that start and stop spontaneously, occur without warning, and last 20 minutes to several hours but not past 24 hours. The patient may also present hearing loss, ear ringing, aural fullness, and nausea associated with dizziness (Schaaf, 2021)…. To purchase ull solution click below
