Nosebleeds How to stop a nose bleed

Submitted by Norma

Often a nose bleed that will not stop is caused by a blood clot in the nose. The nose should be blowed to remove the clot, then gentle pressure should be applied by squeezing the nostrils together until the bleeding stops.

How to Stop a Nose Bleed Comments By: Amjid on 2009-01-17
I have suffered nose bleeds for 30 years and know how to stop the bleed quickly - so much so, that no bleed last very long any more. First, blow your nose so that it is reasonably clear. That will temporarily increase blood loss. Then, the key part of the plan - keeping your head upright, with just a slight tilt forward (so that the blood does not go down your throat, but at the same time gravity is not causing more blood flow than necessary) breathe in through the nose and breathe out through the mouth and repeat this for 10 minutes. This has the effect of causing rapid clotting of the bleed without causing outward pressure on the bleed. If you doubt this works I ask you to do this as you read this message - breathe in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth, and you will get the picture. Good luck.
