Whether pinching the nostrils or holding the head back, or ice on the nose, getting a nosebleed to stop can be a problem. But usually one of those methods will finally work.

However doctors at Detroit Medical Center were puzzled as to how to control the nose-bleeding of a four year old girl with a rare hereditary disorder. Nothing worked, until they tried cured pork! One of the doctors remembered an unconventional method that was described in an old military field manual.

They used strips of cured salted pork crafted as a nasal tampon and packed in the nose. It stopped the hemorrhaging immediately.

Go to this site to read more on the procedure. In fact, after she suffered another injury that brought on a nose bleed, they tried it again, and it worked the second time!
