First Aid Pop Quiz for Childminders – ANSWERS – nose bleed

He has a nose bleed.

 

 

 

 

Answer

The first thing you should do is to sit the child down. Then grab your first aid kit, put on your gloves. Lean the child forward and pinch the bridge of his nose.  

Encourage them not to speak, swallow, cough, spit or sniff because this may break blood clots that may have started to form in the nose. If the bleeding is severe, or if it lasts more than 30 minutes, call 999 for medical help.

To remind yourself how to deal with nose bleeds see the St. John’s Ambulance website.
