The Correct answer is :
Tinnitus is a problem that affects many people. It is a constant ringing sound in the ears. This can occur alone or with Meniere’s disease. Clients with tinnitus state that a soft noise in the background, such as a fan, television, or radio can help to hide the ringing sound. The sound seems louder when the room is very quiet. Caffeine does not decrease tinnitus and this problem is trying to sleep and therefore does not need caffeine. While a call can be made to the physician for a sedative, it is best to try to alleviate this problem without medication, if possible. As the population continues to age, hospitals will be providing care to more clients with issues with their senses such as eyes and ears. As the nurse, you need to recognize means of assisting clients to cope with these issues.
