People are sometimes misinformed about the best way to stop a nosebleed. The correct way to help someone with a nosebleed is to follow these steps…


 

How To Stop A Nose Bleed

1. Press both sides of the nostrils while the person sits and leans forward.

2. Place constant pressure on both sides of the nostrils for a few minutes until the bleeding stops.

3. If bleeding continues, press harder.

4. Dial 911 if:
-you can’t stop the bleeding in about 15 minutes.
-the bleeding is heavy, such as gushing blood.
-the person has trouble breathing.

 

How To Stop Bleeding From The Mouth

You can usually stop bleeding from the mouth with pressure. Bleeding from the mouth can be serious if blood or broken teeth block the air-way and cause breathing problems or if you can’t reach the bleeding area.

1. Apply pressure to the area with gauze dressings or clean cloth. If the bleeding is from the tongue, lip, or cheek, press the bleeding area with gauze or a clean cloth.

2. Dial 911 if…
-you can’t stop the bleeding.
-the person has trouble breathing.
