Navigating the challenges of Meniere disease
To help the patient with MD achieve an optimal quality of life, nurses need an understanding of MD's pathophysiology and treatment approaches. This disease's hearing and balance symptoms, especially vertigo, can cause significant morbidity. Managing the frequency and intensity of vertigo may be a challenge for some patients. A case study presented here describes a patient with MD who received intratympanic gentamicin (ITG) to manage intractable vertigo.
