EPISTAXIS
[noun]
(from Greek επιστάζω (epistazo) to bleed from the nose: επί (epi) - “above”, “over” + στάζω (stazo) - “to drip” [from the nostrils]) also known as a nosebleed - the relatively common occurrence of haemorrhage from the nose, usually noticed when the blood drains out through the nostrils. There are two types: anterior (the most common), and posterior (less common, more likely to require medical attention). Sometimes in more severe cases, the blood can come up the nasolacrimal duct and out from the eye. Fresh blood and clotted blood can also flow down into the stomach and cause nausea and vomiting.
