Sometimes people bleed from places that aren’t easy to bandage. Quite a lot of people bleed from their nose. You need to try and stop the bleeding.

Nose Bleeds


The best way to do this is to pinch their nose (this is just like applying pressure!). So that blood doesn’t trickle down their nose, into their airway, get them to tip their head forward. This may make a mess, so make sure there’s a bucket ready to catch any blood!!!


If it’s really hard to stop the bleeding, try getting them to suck an ice cube (or an ice lolly), or put an ice pack on their nose. This makes all the blood vessels get a bit narrower, so less blood can come out.
