The child had nosebleed, the mother handled it the wrong way, and the 3-year-old child was sent to the emergency room

Nosebleeds are a very common emergency in children. It is precisely because it is common that many parents will think that nosebleeds in their children are a trivial matter and do not pay attention to them. Many parents still don't know what to do when their child has a nosebleed. Some of them will let the child lie down immediately and use a tissue to stop the bleeding, and some will make the child's head back to prevent the nosebleed. Don't look at children's nosebleeds are very common, it is a small thing, but sometimes small things are not handled correctly, it will lead to big disasters. Doudou's mother never thought that because of her own mistake, her child would lose her life due to nosebleeds. The 3-year-old Doudou is very lively and cute. One day, when Doudou was playing in the amusement facilities in the community, he suddenly started to have a nosebleed. Doudou's mother was surprised when she saw the child's nosebleed, and hurriedly plugged the child's nose with a tissue to stop the bleeding. However, this traditional method of hemostasis did not work. Doudou's nosebleeds became more and more frequent, and the tissue was red. Seeing that her precious son had so many nosebleeds, Doudou's mother panicked and hurriedly took a taxi to take the child to the hospital. On the way, in order to let the child stop the bleeding as soon as possible, Doudou's mother asked the child to tilt his head back to prevent the nosebleed. But for some reason, Doudou's face became worse and worse, like a pale white paper. After arriving at the hospital, the doctor saw that the situation was in critical condition and rushed Doudou into the emergency room. During the rescue process, Doudouma's heart was hanging and anxious. She did not expect that her child would go to the emergency room because of a nosebleed. The situation that made Doudou's mother even more unacceptable happened. After the rescue, the doctor told Doudou's mother a bad news. Doudou was not rescued, and the doctor had tried his best. Due to nasal blood flowing to the child's trachea and lungs, the child was suffocated, and by the time he was sent to the hospital, it was too late. Why do nosebleeds choke on the trachea and lungs? Doudou's mother was very puzzled, and it was not until the doctor asked her if she let the child raise her head that she suddenly woke up. It turned out that it was his own wrong instruction that was the ultimate cause of the death of the child. The doctor's words were like a bolt from the blue to Mother Doudou. She slumped on the ground and cried aloud, blaming herself. The tragedy of Doudou reminds the majority of parents, don't think that a child's nosebleed is a trivial matter, and if the trivial matter is not handled correctly, it will lead to a big disaster in minutes. When a child has a nosebleed, there are some well-known practices that are actually wrong. Parents, don't repeat the mistakes of Doudou's mother because of ignorance. After the child has a nosebleed, these countermeasures are not advisable. ①Let the child tilt his head back. In order to stop the bleeding as soon as possible, parents ask the child to tilt his head back when the nosebleeds occur. In fact, this approach is very dangerous and is not advisable. Leaning your head back allows nasal blood to flow into your airways, which may choke in your windpipe and cause suffocation. After the head is raised, the nosebleed may also flow into the gastrointestinal tract, causing the child to nausea, vomiting, and increasing the child's discomfort. ②Slap the child's forehead and neck with cold water. Many parents will use cold water to slap the child's forehead and neck after encountering a nosebleed in the child, so that the child's blood vessels are constricted to stop the bleeding. The original intention of this practice is good, but this "cold compress" is not effective because the distance between the forehead and neck and the child's nose is too far. ③ Plug the child's nostrils with cotton balls and parents will use cotton balls to stop the bleeding when the child has a nosebleed. They try to block the blood flow by inserting the ball of change into the child's nostril. There are two drawbacks to using cotton balls to stop nosebleeds. First, the cleanliness of the cotton balls cannot be guaranteed, and direct contact with the child's nostrils may cause infection. Another disadvantage is that the cotton ball has little effect on hemostasis. In many cases, the nosebleed will soak the entire cotton ball and flow non-stop. Since these popular methods of stopping nosebleeds do not work, what should parents do when their children have nosebleeds? When the child has a nosebleed, don't let the child raise his head and block the nostrils with paper. The correct method is here. Use the pressing method to stop the bleeding. After the child has a nosebleed, parents should not let the child look up, Instead, have the child sit upright and lean forward slightly. If the child bleeds from both nostrils, parents can press both sides of the child's nostrils with their hands. During this period, let the child open his mouth to breathe. The pressing process lasts about 5 minutes to stop the nosebleed. If the child only bleeds from one nostril, parents only need to use this method to press one side of the nostril. The method of pressing to stop bleeding is not limited to this. In addition, parents can also use sterile gauze to fill the child's nostrils to achieve the effect of compression and hemostasis. It is important to note that the padding selected by parents is best to be sterilized gauze, rather than cotton balls. ★Use cold compress to stop bleeding Some parents know how to use cold compress to stop nosebleeds, but they apply it in the wrong place. The application site is too far from the nose, and the hemostatic effect is not obvious. If the child has a small amount of nosebleeds, parents can apply ice packs to the root of the child's nose and the bridge of the nose. Cold compress is a more effective way to quickly stop nosebleeds. Parents must pay attention to the correct position of cold compress. ★ Sending to the doctor in time If the nosebleeds of the child continue to flow in addition to the above two methods, parents should send the child to the hospital for a checkup as soon as possible to prevent the child from bleeding too much. Written at the end Since I became a mother, whenever I saw some knowledge about first aid, I would involuntarily read it several times and keep it in my heart. Because you don't know when your child will encounter what kind of sudden situation. Only by memorizing the correct way of coping can parents stay calm and calm when encountering things.
