My 2 year old son has had several nose bleeds. A couple of them almost had me rushing to the ER, but right when I would decide to go, it would stop. Not today! We went to the ER by ambulance! His nose was actually gushing, I had about 10 paper towels that got soaked by globs of clots & blood from his mouth (thats just one incident from this time!). We went through atleast half a roll of toilet paper & paper towels. His shirt was soaked, the floor was covered.. I had never seen anything like this. We called 911. When the ambulance arrived, 3 streams of blood came out of my baby's right eye. His nose bled for 25 minutes before it finally quit. His HR was 156 & his B/P was 128/78. T 99. They ran 0 tests & offered 0 info. When we left, his HR was still in the 150s. Its finally in the 140s, but Im still very concerned. This started at 10am & it is now 8pm. When should his HR be back to normal & how do I go about getting someone to offer me some sort of reasoning or treatment?? We run a humidifier, I put vasoline in his nostrils, & when I can con him into it, we use saline spray. But I need some more info! I dont ever want to see blood come out of his eye again! Is that "normal"?View Thread
