Nursing point for nosebleed

  • ImageVisit the emergency clinic while keeping the nose pressed and leaning slightly forward.
  • If your child lays facing upward, the nosebleed will flow down into your child’s throat and will cause coughing, or ingesting the blood may cause nausea.
  • Do not hit the back of your child’s neck. There is no basis for hitting the back of the neck.

At the hospital, let your doctor know

  • What was your child doing when the nosebleed started? (For example: hit his/her nose, taking a bath, etc.)
  • Does your child have a chronic disease?
  • Does your child often get a nosebleed? How often? (For example: once a month, rarely, etc.)
