Cold Key On Spine To Stop A Nosebleed


Silver Post Medal for All Time! 433 Posts

My two sons have always suffered from nosebleeds. Someone told me to keep keys in the freezer so I decided to try it. Put the key onto the back of the neck until warm, also run it down the spine. This constricts blood vessels and stops the bleeding. A spoon or coin would work as well. It works every time.

Great tip, Coville! The reason this works is called the Mammalian Diving Reflex. What happens is that it causes the heart rate to slow down which in turn slows down the flow of blood to the entire body. The actual name of using cold as a treatment is called the Chase Maneuver.

Anything really cold will work including an ice pack, super cold wet rag, submerging your head in cold water and even the splashing of cold water to the face.
