Abstract

Background: Epistaxis is common clinical presentation to the emergency department. Initial management in mild anterior epistaxis involves manual compression of the anterior aspect of the nose. However, this step is often not done appropriately. Objective: The purpose of this article is to discuss the benefits of applying nose clips in the management of epistaxis. It can be a simple alternative to providing adequate digital compression in initial management of epistaxis. Discussion: Swimmer’s clips have been previously described in the literature for the management of mild epistaxis. The nose clip described in this article is initially designed for spirometry. This clip is user-friendly, affordable and can be easily applied to provide temporary tamponade.
