Are you referring to this?

I've just remembered something else, you roll up a piece of tissue paper or whatever and stuff it between your teeth and top lip, (the end result is that you look like a rugby player or a boxer with their mouthguards in) then you press hard on it and the bleeding should stop :)

With all due respect Karen W., but I don't think that you have read the 'instructions' properly.

pressing hard on it may have the same effect as if you were pinching the nose off but your lip would be blocking the passage...

No. Don't worry about it.
I was merely suggesting that I needed some sleep. :)

I ran into a rather serious nosebleed one time while mountaineering. My friend decided to make a rather impressive display as in a Monty Python film. Direct pressure only made the blood flow backwards into the mouth. Eventually we were able to pack snow over his face to stop the bleeding. This made my friend happy since an emergency technician who came upon us was ready to ram a long gauze bandage up the nostril to stop the flow.
