Whether it is a child or an adult with nosebleeds, the first thing to do is to remove the clots from the nose by blowing a light nose, and then to make the patient sit down and tilt his head forward. While the patient is in a sitting position, pressure should be applied for 5-10 minutes by compressing both sides of the nose wing. Applying ice on the nose during pressure helps to control nosebleeds. In the meantime, the patient is asked to spit out the blood coming into the mouth. In this way, most of the bleeding from the anterior side is controlled. In cases of bleeding that does not stop with these measures, it is necessary to consult an ENT specialist.
Lifting the head back, which is wrongly known in the society, causes increased bleeding and retching.
