Default Diarrhoea treatment

A 17-year-old boy comes to the emergency
department because of severe thirst and
weakness and a 4-kg (1.8-lb) weight loss over
the past 36 hours. He began having voluminous
painless watery diarrhea on the airplane while
returning from a trip to Thailand 36 hours ago.
He has not vomited. While supine, pulse is
110/min and blood pressure is 110/60 mm Hg.
While standing, pulse is 170/min and blood
pressure is 70/40 mm Hg. His abdomen is
nontender and bowel sounds are increased.
Which of the following treatments is most
appropriate at this time?
(A) Ciprofloxacin
(B) Doxycycline
(C) Exploratory laparotomy
(D) Potassium chloride
(E) Rehydration
(F) Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole
