Understanding tissues and nosebleeds
Tissues are the most common way to treat nosebleeds. Unfortunately, for ____ with ____ nosebleeds, they are a poor choice.
Tissues are not designed to be absorbent, so you often need many (blood filled) tissues to stop a bleed. Also, tissues are made of cotton, which binds to the clot as it forms. This means, when you remove that last tissue there is an excellent chance you will reopen the clot.
Nampons were designed for nosebleeds. Unlike tissues, Nampons are made of a non-stick, absorbent surgical sponge, so ____ typically only need one to handle a nosebleed. Also, since they are non-stick, they wont reopen the clot when it forms.
Nampons also have a mild clotting agent, which has been used since the 1940s to treat minor wounds. This means Nampons can stop a nosebleed much faster, so ___ can get back to ____ day with less interruption (or embarrassment).
