Epistaxis Nosebleed


 What Is Epistaxis (Nosebleed)?

 Epistaxis, or bleeding from the  nose, is a common complaint.
 It is rarely life threatening but  may cause significant concern, especially among parents.
 Most nosebleeds are benign,  self-limiting, and spontaneous, but some can be recurrent. Many uncommon causes  are also noted.


Types of Epistaxis
  • Anterior  bleeds
  • Posterior  bleeds
Anterior haemorrhage - the source of bleeding is visible in about  95% of cases - usually from the nasal septum, particularly Little's area which  is where Kiesselbach's plexus forms (an anastomotic network of vessels on the  anterior portion of the nasal septum).
 Posterior haemorrhage - this emanates from deeper structures of the  nose and occurs more commonly in older individuals. Nosebleeds from this area  are usually more profuse and have a greater risk of airway compromise.
