The article focuses on bedside neuro-otological examination. It mentions that neuro-otological examination is best addressed by taking a comprehensive history, by a physical examination directed towards detecting abnormalities of eye movements and gait, and by identifying any associated otological or neurological problems. As stated, recording techniques, including electronystagmography (ENG), video-oculography and spiral coil recordings, allow a more detailed examination of eye movements.
