Dizziness Demographics and Population Health

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Dizziness and imbalance are common conditions affecting people of all ages, particularly the elderly. In this chapter, we start by defining dizziness, imbalance, and presbyvestibulopathy, or age-related vestibular loss, which is of particular interest to the otolaryngologist, the neurologist, and the primary care physician. We then review the epidemiology of dizziness, imbalance, and presbyvestibulopathy. Finally, we discuss the impacts of these conditions on population health from the perspective of the older adult and the healthcare system.
