Although a common disorder, nosebleeds can cause significant morbidity and are occasionally fatal. The standard method of managing heavy bleeding has been to insert impregnated ribbon gauze packs and admit patients for bed rest, often for several days. There are now several available options, each of which will be discussed within this article.
The use of selective arterial embolization and management of hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia will also be discussed.
