• Epistaxis Complications

  • Hemorrhage: Sudden Epistaxis if severe with excessive bleeding can lead to hemorrhage.
  • Cardio-vascular compromise: In certain life threatening cases, especially following severe trauma or surgery, epistaxis can lead to cardio-vascular shock which can prove fatal.
  • Recurrent epistaxis: Epistaxis due to a local anatomical cause or a systemic disorder can be recurrent and disrupt one's lifestyle.
  • Anemia: Chronic epistaxis with frequent episodes of a long duration can lead to anemia from blood loss.
