Nampons stop nosebleeds fast
Follow the instructions below to properly use a Nampon to stop a nosebleed
Insert Slowly. Trim If Needed
Gently insert the Nampon into the nasal cavity being careful not to push too far. If using on a child, you can cut as needed to fit their nose.
Apply Gentle Pressure
Nampons expand to gently place pressure on the bleed.
Remove & Discard
Nampons glide out easily without reopening the clot once the bleeding stops.
If the bleeding hasn’t stopped, repeat. If still going after 15 minutes, seek medical attention.
Additional tips on how to stop a nosebleed
Pinch and lean in, not back
Inserting a Nampon, gently pinch both nostrils right below the bony part of the nose for at least five minutes. The Nampons will provide gentle intranasal pressure and form a clot, while the external pressure will keep the bleeding under control.
No tissues or cotton
While you may have been raised with the idea of shoving a tissue in your nose at the first sight of blood, this is actually problematic. Tissues and cotton swabs are not designed to absorb blood or form clots. Furthermore, both tissues and cotton, unlike the PVA-sponge material used in Nampons, can stick to the blood clot and reopen the wound when the material is removed.
Remove Nampons carefully after ten minutes and discard. Placing a cool or ice-filled cloth on the bridge of the nose may help slow the bleeding and reduce any swelling that may have resulted if the bleed is due to an injury.
