Clinical Information For the Treatment Of Nosebleed (Epistaxis)
What Is Nosebleed (Epistaxis)?
Nosebleed (Epistaxis) - Basics
Nosebleed (or epistaxis) is a common medical complaint. It may be an acute, self limiting issue such as from trauma to the nose. It may also arise from more chronic recurring issues such as bleeding disorders, hypertension, leukemia, vitamin k deficiency among others. From a Chinese Medicine perspective the more chronic issues require precise diagnosis within Chinese Medicine terms to help resolve the underlying physical issues leading to the nosebleeds.
