A medical doctor on Twitter has written a helpful post, warning people about what not to do if they start experiencing a nose bleed.
Advising Twitter users on what to do if your nose is bleeding, Dr Sam Ghali tweeted:
If your nose is bleeding, DO NOT TILT YOUR HEAD BACK. This just makes the blood drip down the back of your throat and you will swallow and/or choke on it. Pinch your nose and TILT YOUR HEAD FORWARD. Please tell all your friends about this.
