Nasal bleeding in children is generally more innocent and is caused by the thrust of a finger-made nasal septum mucosa. In older patients and in patients with recurrent severe bleeding, uncontrolled hypertension, vascular diseases, bleeding disorders may be a more serious underlying cause. Particularly in patients who received no treatment and hidden hypertension, only patients with epistaxis were diagnosed with hypertension and treatment was initiated. In fact, it is a symptom that scares the patient due to hypertension; long-term uncontrolled hypertension also protects the patient.

Hypertension-induced nosebleeds can be seen at night during the night in sleep, and may occur when the patient is irritated or eating salt. It usually presents as a severe nosebleed bleeding from the back of the nose. The ear nose throat specialist and the cardiologist should evaluate the patient.
