Question
Posted : April 3, 2007
Hi Oliver, I recently finished a dive at Stoney and found I had suffered a nose bleed in my mask. Is this of any major significance and should I be concerned?
The dive was 35m deep and I had no other signs.
I have been deeper than 36m in the past with no such problems and since then have been down to that same 36m hydrobox with no more nose bleeding.
Otherwise fit and well no PMHx or Meds

Basically,
if your sinues squeeze or you blow your nose too hard on =ing, then you can get blood in the mask.
Do not worry,
if you get it every dive then we need to look a\t you
