Epley Maneuver for BPPV



Epley manuver

 - Epley begins after the last step of the Dix Hallpike

 - Patient remains in the position with exacerbated nystagmus for approximately 1–2 minutes.

 - Patient's head is then turned 90 degrees to the opposite direction so that the unaffected ear faces the ground

 - Maintain the 20 degree neck extension

 - Keep the head and neck in a fixed position while the patient rolls onto their opposite shoulder. The patient is now looking downwards at a 45 degree angle.

 - Keep the patient in the new position for 1 minute.

 - Finally bring the patient up to sitting while holding the head in 45 degree rotation.

 - May require multiple attempts, but you can discharge patient home with daily exercises
