"Head should be held back in case of nasal bleeding"

FALSE
The only effect of this measure is to avoid soiling your clothes and/or the floor with blood. But bleeding does not stop in this way. Instead, blood goes directly into the trachea, in case of heavy bleeding can be reached even to vomiting and suffocation. Much more effective is the introduction of a cotton swab into the nostril that is bleeding, gently squeezing the nostrils and tilt the head slightly forward. Even a cold towel, wet, applied on back of the head may alleviate the bleeding.
