Adult Epistaxis, Epidemiology and Management at the University Hospital of The West Indies

Epistaxis is stated as one of the most common otolaryngology emergencies. Minor epistaxis originates from the anterior septum and is secondary to nose picking in children and dessication of the mucosa in adults from dry air. Major epistaxis lacks a precise definition but is characterised as being difficult for patients to control which results in a visit to the emergency department. There is a high prevalence of elevated blood pressure readings and hypertension among our patients with epistaxis. Most cases of epistaxis can be managed successfully with non-surgical treatment.
