Nose Bleed Definition

Definition

Nosebleed refers to blood flowing from the nose or nasal passage. There are two types of nosebleeds:

  • Anterior nosebleed—blood coming from the front of the nose, usually the semi-rigid walls that separate the two nostrils. This is the most common type of nosebleed.
  • Posterior nosebleed—bleeding starts deep within the nose. It is often more difficult to treat and more severe than an anterior nosebleed.
