Supplemental Oxygen and Nose Bleeds: What do you do?

Hi @katt56b People who use supplemental oxygen to breath can be at risk for nosebleeds because the nasal prongs can cause trauma to, or irritate, the inside of their noses. In this situation, two recommendations are to humidify the oxygen or switch to an oxygen mask instead of the nasal prongs. Nasal saline sprays also can help.

Do you get nosebleeds often?

Yes, I get nose bleeds often, most times daily, sometime the very bad ones I get in the middle of the night it is an uncomfortable thing to have happen. I use saline nasal gel to add moisture it helps me quite a bit and yes nasal saline spray does help.
