Answer

Educate parents and caregivers of a patient treated with nonoperative reduction with regard to the risks and signs and symptoms of recurrence so that the initiation of care is not delayed.

For patient education information, see the Digestive Disorders Center, as well as Abdominal Pain in Children, Colic, Rectal Bleeding, and Barium Enema.
