Epistaxis Device for Nose Bleeds | Auburn Medical Group

The Rapid Rhino is an inflatable device which applies pressure to stop bleeding (tamponade) from a bloody nose (epistaxis). Use of an inflatable device like this is how to stop a nose bleed which does not allow cautery and which does not involve arteries in the posterior nasal cavity.

Home treatment to stop a nose bleed would include holding the head upright and pinching on the end and sides of the nose for 20 minutes straight, without letting up. This can be repeat if it does not work the first time. Medical attention should be sought if it is not successful at stopping the nose bleed after the second attempt.
