Nose Bleeding: Causes and its first aid treatment

Bleeding occurs either from the blood vessels inside the nostrils or from a fractured skull. In case of fracture of the skull, tie blood is mixed with cerebrospinal fluid.

First Aid

  1. Place the victim in sitting position with his head well forward.
  2. Loosen tight clothing around the neck.
  3. Ask him to breathe through the mouth and spit out any blood that enters the mouth.
  4. Gently clean around the nose and the mouth.
  5. Do not plug the nose.
  6. Ask him not to blow the nose for at least 4 hours after the bleeding stops, as that may dislodge the blood clot and start the bleeding again.
  7. Shift him to a doctor’s clinic for further evaluation and treatment.
