The nurse teaches the client with multiple sclerosis who has urinary retention to:

1. Run water when experiencing difficulty initiating urination.
2. Decrease fluid intake to prevent urgency.
3. Drink a caffeinated beverage to promote diuresis.
4. Perform self-intermittent catheterization.

Explanation

Urinary retention in the client with multiple sclerosis is a sequelae of impaired conduction of nerves innervating the bladder. The client with multiple sclerosis will be encouraged to increase her fluid intake to prevent constipation. Urinary retention is incomplete emptying of the bladder. Neither running water nor caffeinated beverages would be useful. Select the option that will directly assist the client in emptying the bladder.
