    Nose Bleed

    • A nose bleed occurs when a small vein, along the lining of nose, bursts
    • Most nosebleeds look scary, but are harmless
    • Can be treated at home
    • Common in children/elderly



    Causes
    • Dryness
    • Nose picking
    • Blowing nose with force
    • Use of medications, like aspirin
    • Introducing objects into nose (mostly children)
    • Injuries
    • Allergies
    • Infections
    • High BP
    • Atherosclerosis
    • Blood-clotting disorders
    • Use of cocaine

    Symptoms
    • Bleeding from nose
    • Sometimes bleeding from ears/mouth too

    Types
    a. Anterior Nosebleed
    • Affects lower part of wall that separates nostrils
    • The wall or septum contains blood vessels
    • These can be broken by blow to nose/fingernail
    • The bleeding starts from front of nose
    • It flows outward when patient is sitting/standing
    • Occurs during dry season/harsh winter

    b. Posterior Nosebleed

    Treatment

    • If your nose bleeds,
    • Sit down and lean forward
    • Using your thumb & index finger, squeeze soft part of nose
    • This part is between end of nose and the bridge of nose
    • Continue holding till bleeding stops-
    • Do not stop in-between
    • If bleeding continues, hold for another 10 minutes
    • If the patient is a child, divert attention by TV/Stories
    • Avoid picking, blowing or rubbing nose for 2 days
    • Place an ice pack on the bridge of nose

    Consult a Doctor If,
    • The bleeding continues for more than 15 minutes
    • The bleeding is caused by an injury
    • You get nosebleeds often

    Prevention
