Lessons from Kobe Bryant and His Broken Nose

By on February 28, 2012

Most NBA fans are on edge today as Lakers star guard Kobe Bryant, the NBA’s leading scorer is being sent to a neurologist after last Sunday’s unfortunate blood-drawing, nose-breaking foul during Sunday’s All-Star game. Dwayne Wade even took some HEAT (forgive the pun) for not offering an apology at the time, something he says he did multiple times since the incident.

But a bloody nose can indeed have serious consequences.  Get to an emergency room if you suffer from any of the following:

  • bleeding cannot be stopped
  • bleeding is rapid, or if there is large amount of blood lost
  • you feel weak, dizzy or faint, presumably from blood loss
  • your nosebleed is associated with a fever or headache
  • when your infant or baby has a nosebleed, call the doctor asap

If the nosebleed persists, see your doctor, who may then recommend stopping the nosebleed with a heating instrument or chemical swab (cautery of the blood vessel that is causing the trouble) of a topical medicine called thrombin that promotes local clotting of blood. Blood tests may be ordered to check for bleeding disorders. In some situations, you may be admitted to the hospital where material is used to plug up the bleeding vessels in the nose, also known as angiographic embolization.

Signs of a broken nose may appear immediately or may take up to three days to develop. Symptoms may include:

  • Pain or tenderness, especially when touching your nose
  • Swelling of your nose and surrounding areas
  • Bleeding from your nose
  • Bruising around your nose or eyes
  • Crooked or misshapen nose

Regarding Kobe, Wade had this to say, “It’s unfortunate, obviously. I don’t want to ever hurt anybody in this game, especially on a freak play like that. It’s unfortunate. I send my apologies. But it’s not intentional. If it’s something I did intentionally, it’d be a different story.”
