First Aid - Nosebleed
- Sit up and lean forward. This will keep the blood from running down the back of the throat.
- Apply Pressure. Gently squeeze the lower soft parts of the nose against the center wall for 10-15 minutes. Use your thumb and your index finger in a pinching manner.
- If the bleeding continues, move your point of pressure and repeat again for another 10-15 minutes.
Special Notes: The goal is to apply continuous pressure to the bleeding point inside the nose.
