This paper presents the effect that hearing loss and Benign Positional Proximal Vertigo (BPPV) have on quality of life and the impact of treatment. The primary purpose of this paper is to critically review the existing literature to determine the effect of hearing loss and BPPV as well as appropriate treatment methods. I find that both hearing loss and BPPV result in negative quality of life and the use of effective treatments can improve the patient‟s quality of life.
