Initiate Treatment with Intravenous Antibiotics


Patients with signs of significant inflammation should be hospitalized for bowel rest and administered intravenous fluids and a broad-spectrum intravenous antibiotic, such as cefoxitin. If pain medication is required, meperidine is an appropriate analgesic because it had been shown to decrease intraluminal pressure. Unless there is a significant ileus or obstructive component, nasogastric suction is usually not required.
