Nose Bleeds

Nose Bleeds

Act Fast:


  • Have the patient sit upright, but don't tilt their head back.

  • Loosen any tight clothing around the neck

  • Pinch the lower end of the nose close to the nostrils and have them lean forward while you apply pressure continuously for ten minutes.

  • Don't release and check the nose before 10 minutes; it could prolong the bleeding.


Follow-Up Care: 


  • If the nosebleed is the result of a trauma, reduce swelling by holding an ice pack against the bridge of the nose after the bleeding slows down.

  • If it persists after ten minutes or returns later, call your doctor or go to the A&E to check for a break.
