Remain with the client.

If a client with severe anxiety is left alone, the client may feel abandoned and become overwhelmed. Placing the client in a quiet room is also important, but the nurse must stay with the client. Teaching the client deep breathing or relaxation is not possible until the anxiety decreases. Encouraging the client to discuss concerns and feelings would not take place until the anxiety has decreased. Test-Taking Strategy: Use the process of elimination. Note the strategic words severe state. Eliminate options 3 and 4 first, knowing that these actions are not possible when the client is in a severe state of anxiety. From the remaining options, the appropriate action is to remain with the client. Review care of the client with severe anxiety if you had difficulty with this question.
