Nosebleed: 6 immediate things to do

From practical tips such as tilting the head forwards and pinching the nostrils briefly, to seeing a doctor in certain situations, we explore ways for dealing with nosebleeds and promoting nasal health

Nosebleeds, though common and often harmless, can be a cause for concern when they occur unexpectedly. A nosebleed, or epistaxis, happens when the delicate blood vessels in the nose break and bleed. This can be triggered by factors such as dry air, nasal irritation or injury.

Whether it is a spontaneous occurrence or a recurrent issue, these simple measures can empower us to manage it promptly and take appropriate action as may be necessary. From practical tips like tilting forwards and pinching the nostrils to the important act of seeking medical help in certain situations, we explore ways to deal with nosebleeds and promote nasal health.

The takeaway on nosebleed

Anyone can experience epistaxis, often linked to factors such as dry air, irritation, or minor injuries. A clinical practice guideline published on 7 January 2020 offers clear recommendations for clinicians managing nosebleeds in individuals aged ≥3 years. It emphasises evidence-based practices to improve care quality, reduce variations, and minimise potential harms. Covering diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, it focuses on first-line interventions and addresses complex management for specific patient groups. Importantly, it serves as a tool for quality improvement, allowing flexibility based on clinician expertise and patient assessment.

It is essential to know how to address it promptly. Equipping yourself with these simple strategies helps handle it, promoting a quick recovery and overall nasal well-being. If the bleeding persists or recurs, promptly seek medical help and get a correct assessment and timely care.
