Summary:

Meniere’s disease affects about 73 of 100,000 Americans. Meniere’s disease is hard to diagnose with certainty; treatment is symptomatic and not always effective. Meniere’s can produce a wide range of symptoms, including vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, aural fullness, and visual difficulties. Despite these challenges, an astute healthcare provider’s prompt recognition, appropriate treatment, and patient education can make a difference in a patient’s hearing, balance, and quality of life. This module describes Meniere’s disease, its symptoms, and its treatments.

Objectives:

The purpose of this module is to provide nurses, fitness professionals, athletic trainers, and health educators with the information to understand what’s known about Meniere’s disease and to provide care to patients with the disease. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify the four main symptoms of early Meniere’s disease
  • Describe two inner ear functions
  • Identify three sensory functions affected by Meniere’s disease
