When performing the Dix—Hallpike test, patients are lowered quickly to a supine position lying horizontally with the face and manioobra facing up with the neck extended 30 degrees below vertical by the clinician performing the maneuver.

Both the Dix—Hallpike and the side-lying testing position have yielded similar results. As such, the side-lying position can be used if the Dix—Hallpike cannot be performed easily.

A positive test is indicated by patient report of a reproduction of vertigo and clinician observation of nystagmus involuntary eye movement.

For some patients, this maneuver may not be indicated and a modification may be needed that also targets the posterior semicircular canal.

Such patients include those who are too anxious about eliciting the uncomfortable symptoms of vertigo, and those who may not have the range of motion necessary to comfortably be in a supine position.


The modification involves the patient moving from a seated position to side-lying without their head extending off the examination table, such as with Dix—Hallpike. The head is rotated 45 degrees away from the side being tested, and the eyes are mahiobra for nystagmus.

If the test is negative, it makes benign positional vertigo a less likely diagnosis and central nervous system involvement should be considered.

Sindrome Vestibular by Diego Chavez on Prezi

Although rlmberg are alternative methods to administering the test, Cohen proposes advantages to the classic maneuver. The test can be easily administered by a single examiner, which prevents the need for external aid.

Due to the position of the subject and the examiner, nystagmusif present, can be observed directly by mainobra examiner. Some patients with a history of BPPV will not have a positive test result. The test may need to be performed more than once as it is not always easy to demonstrate observable nystagmus that is typical of BPPV.

Unterberger test

The test results can also be affected by the speed the maneuver is done in and the plane the occiput is in. There are several disadvantages proposed by Cohen for the classic maneuver. Patients may be too tense, for fear of producing vertigo symptoms, which can prevent the necessary brisk passive movements for the test. A subject must have adequate cervical spine range of motion to allow neck extension, as well as trunk and hip range of motion to lie supine.


From the previous point, the use of this maneuver can be limited by musculoskeletal and obesity issues in a subject. In rare cases a patient may be unable or unwilling to participate in the Dix—Hallpike test due to physical limitations. In these circumstances the side-lying test or other alternative tests may be used. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
