Bloody Nose - All Too Common. Always Disruptive.

One out of every seven people will get a bloody nose at some point in their lives. Nosebleeds
impact males and females across all age and ethnic groups. While most nosebleeds aren’t serious,
one thing is for certain, nosebleeds are almost always embarrassing and very disruptive.

Research shows that 30% of U.S. households have one or more sufferers of recurring
nosebleeds. In fact, many people experience nosebleeds several times a week. People with
Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT), those taking blood thinners, or people with
blood-based diseases such as hemophilia and Von Willebrand's disease are just some of the
groups who suffer from frequent nosebleeds.

The medical term for nosebleed is epistaxis – the origin of which is Greek, meaning dropping.

Over 90% of nosebleeds are anterior nosebleeds, occurring in the lower cavity or front of
the nose, and are not life threatening. It’s these more common nosebleeds which NasalCEASE
is specifically designed to quickly and conveniently stop. Patients with posterior nosebleeds,
those occurring in the upper cavity or back of the nose, should always be treated by a
healthcare professional.
