SYNOPSIS

EPISTAXIS

Epistaxis, commonly known as nosebleed, is a frequent occurrence encountered in clinical practice, presenting a spectrum of challenges in its diagnosis and management. This lecture aims to demystify the intricacies of epistaxis, offering a comprehensive exploration of its etiology, risk factors, clinical presentation, diagnostic approach, therapeutic interventions, and preventive strategies. 

The lecture unravels the delicate vascular architecture of the nasal cavity and the vulnerability of its mucosal lining to trauma, inflammation, and vascular abnormalities. Risk factors for epistaxis are scrutinized, with a focus on modifiable contributors such as environmental conditions, nasal trauma, coagulopathies, hypertension, and anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapy.

Clinical manifestations of epistaxis are explored in detail, encompassing the spectrum of severity from mild, self-limiting bleeds to recurrent or profuse hemorrhage necessitating urgent intervention. Through case studies, clinical vignettes and demo on how to nasal pack, attendees acquired proficiency in the systematic evaluation of epistaxis, including assessment of bleeding severity, localization of the bleeding source, and identification of associated symptoms or complications.
