In case of nose bleeding: Stay calm. If you start to get nervous, it can actually make you bleed more. Try to relax. Sit up, don’t lie down. Keep your head above your heart. Lean a little bit forward. This keeps the blood from draining down the back of your throat. Pinch your nostrils closed.
Use your thumb and index finger to hold your nostrils closed for 5 to 10 minutes while you breathe through your mouth. This puts pressure on the part of your nose that’s bleeding and can make the blood stop flowing. Once the bleeding has stopped, do not touch or blow your nose. This may start it bleeding again.
