Epistaxis

Question
13 out of 24
 

A 70 years aged patient with epistaxis, patient is hypertensive with BP = 200/100 mm Hg. On examination no active bleeding noted, next step of management is:



A Observation

B Internal maxillary artery ligation

C Anterior and posterior nasal pack

D Anterior nasal pack

Ans. A Observation Ref. Scott Brown 7th/ed; Vol 1 p 1065

We do not need any reference to answer this particular question as the answer is hidden in the question only.

The question itself says that no active bleeding is seen-so no need to do anything just observe the patient and because his B/P is 200/100 mm Hg which is quite high, give him antihypertensive drugs.
