Epistaxis: Sit up straight Do not lie down or tilt head backwards pinch the nose just below the bone against the face apply pressure for 5 minutes. Repeat for 5 minutes if it does not stop Contact Dr if it continues after 10 minutes you are on blood thinners nose bleed occurs after trauma most nose bleeds occur in one nostril, and in the anterior (front) portion of the nares. Dry nose is a common cause
