 Did You Know?


There are two goals a first aider must keep in mind in managing nosebleeds: (1) controlling blood loss and (2) keeping an open airway. Here are the steps in managing a bleeding nose.

  1. Assist victim in sitting down, with the head tilted slightly forward. Tell victim not to lean back or this may cause the blood to run down the throat into the stomach or into the lungs.
  2. Ask victim to breath through his or her mouth and pinch the front part of the nose.
  3. Use ice on the bridge of the nose to help with pain and to slow bleeding.
  4. Remove pinch from nose after 10 minutes. If bleeding has not stopped, pinch nose again for 10 minutes.
  5. Advise victim to avoid blowing the nose, hot temperatures, and stress.

Note: If nosebleed is severe and does not stop after 30 minutes, seek medical attention.
