What first aid can be provided?

Wednesday, 26 August 2009

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

Following first aid steps should be considered to provide immediate care to the patient:

  • Make the person sit in a comfortable position
  • Check to see if there is any object in the patient’s nose and remove it if necessary
  • Pinch the nose firmly for 5 to 10 minutes without releasing
  • Release the nostrils slowly and avoid touching or blowing the nose
  • Repeat the procedure if the bleeding doesn’t stop
  • If the nose is still bleeding, call for a doctor.
  • Google Buzz
