The best first aid for nose bleeding starts with a calm approach. There is an overwhelming urge to mat swab or tamponade the nose which is really not helpful since it only reduces the visual impact of the bleeding and prevents the splatter effect that concerns everyone.
In my opinion the best approach for immediate first aid is to remove the person to a site for control that can be cleaned up afterward. Then gather the supplies needed (Kleenex, paper towels wash cloth and some type of bowl or basin). Once these are collected then have the person sit forward with blood flowing into the bowl or basin and get the person to blow their nose to remove the initial clots. In this instance clots are bad they don’t actually stop the bleeding they just congest the nose.
Congratulations to Quinn, Kristin, Fred and Tom for passing their grading exams. Hard work does pay off and this group proves that you can become a black belt at any age!
Quinn received his Nidan and Kristen, Fred and Tom received their Shodan. Their success was featured in an article in the Prince George Citizen which you can read here.
