Specializes in Emergency Medicine

Sealing the vessel: Nosebleeds are caused by a bleeding blood vessel or several small vessels, usually on the middle wall of one nostril. Cauterization means using heat, electricity or a chemical to essentially burn the edges of the vessel and seal it closed so blood won't leak anymore.
