Epistaxis is a condition that results in uncertain nose bleeding from either of the nostrils. This clinical condition is usually classified as posterior epistaxis and anterior epistaxis based on the site where the bleeding originates. According to The New England Journal of Medicine, around 60% of people worldwide have faced epistaxis at least once during their lifetime, and out of these, 6% patients required medical treatment. The prevalence of Epistaxis is high in children less than 10 years of age and people over the age of 35 years.
Epistaxis is usually caused by local trauma, including nasal infection and even nose picking. Environmental factors causing epistaxis include lack of humidity in the atmosphere, dry climate, or prolonged inhalation of dry air. People who are on medications such as clopidogrel, warfarin, aspirin, or any other anticoagulant medications are more susceptible to epistaxis. Other predisposing factors such as, cocaine snorting, allergic and non-allergic rhinitis, alcohol abuse, hypertension, and inherited bleeding problems also lead to epistaxis. Epistaxis Devices are used in the treatment of nosebleed. Epistaxis devices includes nasal tampons, nasal catheters and others

Global Epistaxis Devices Market: Dynamics
Increasing Prevalence of Hypertension and Change in Environment to Boost Market
Hypertension is highly susceptible to hemorrhage are leading causes of epistaxis. According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), high blood pressure happens in 1 in every 12 to 17 pregnancies among women ages 20 to 44. Furthermore, air pollution is a major factor which is likely to cause epistaxis. Breathing polluted air is more prone to cause epistaxis. According to World Economic Forum, more than 9 out of 10 people breathe polluted air. All these factors are likely to boost the global epistaxis devices market.
