Particle Repositioning Maneuver

The patient is placed on his back with his head turned to one side and hanging over the end of the table (Halpike-Maneuver).  The ear which is causing the dizziness is placed downward.  The PRM is then performed slowly over 2 minutes.  The position of the patient's head is not changed to his body.  A vibrator is used to help mobilize the particles.
