News

Nosebleeds can be pretty common during North Dakota’s dry and cold winter months.

Even with a humidifier, sometimes it’s not enough to stop the bleed.

Kyle Johnson; Department Chair of Otolaryngology: Saline sprays or washes, watery saline, salt, and water. Saline gel, which is probably my top favorite. And just vasoline. It actually works pretty well and most people already have that in their house.”

Johnson says about one in three patients that come in for persistent nosebleeds need nose cauterization.
