Can breaking a nose during stroke save someone?

A co-worker of mine was telling me a story, how believable, I'll leave it up to you.

He was telling me that he had a stroke while in the bathroom, standing over the sink. Upon having the stroke, he said he fell forward, hitting his face against the sink, breaking his nose.

After breaking his nose, he said the blood was able to flow out. He claimed the doctor said, had he not broken his nose, he probably would have died.

Does this make sense to anyone? A stroke happens due to the clotting of blood or the rupture of a blood clot. I'm not a doctor, but it does seem plausible..

I'd like to know the validity of this because in the event I see someone having a stroke, I don't want to go breaking noses of people dying for no reason

I also personally have fibrous bone-dysplasia in a small portion of my skull. Doctor said I was fine, but sometimes it gives me anxiety. If something like this rings true though, it would be something I could tell my family and fiance in case I ever experience (god-forbid) a stroke.

It's new to me.

I herd sticking a pin in the tips of the fingers can help alleviate/mitigate a stroke.

A stroke is caused by a blood clot. Causing a bleed elsewhere does nothing for the clot. I would have to have a neurological surgeon tell me a broken nose would help before I'd believe it.

That was the only article I read in relation, I can't find anything on the web about relieving blood from the face for an immediate cure

ETA By the way, I have a clotting disorder and have been tested for over a dozen causes so I do know a little about this one.

I am a former qualified nurse and my wife is a stroke expert
we both agree that, yes it may reduce your blood pressure
however you will still have the clot or haemorrhage that is causing the stroke
and now a broken nose
so in summery probably BS

best advice is, don't go punching people having a stroke

hope that helps

www.tuftsmedicalcenter.org... stroke


Once the bleeding in the brain stops, treatment focuses on supporting the body while it absorbs the blood. If the bleeding is extensive and life threatening, our neurosurgery team may perform a surgery to remove the blood or temporarily remove part of the skull to relieve pressure on the brain.


Only thing I could find...

A stroke is like a heart attack for the brain. Part of the brain is not getting blood. Either by clot or hemorrhage. I don’t know how making the nose bleed would alleviate that.

Stick them in the recovery position and kick them in the face.

CPR has changed somewhat. LoL

Ridiculous.If anything...it would kill or paralyze you by violently dislodging any all or partial clots.

Is there a possibility it could push the clots out?

That would depend on where in the brain the stroke took place i imagine.

Chances are dislodging the clot would only lead to further damage.

i agree mate

it's not like when you stub your toe and you repeatedly slam your junk in the fridge door to alleviate the sore toe

You bite your lip when you stub your toe though, right?

I find the fridge door works just as well

however, i have have been thrown out of several supermarkets in the past as it's deemed socially unacceptable

I would seriously doubt that. There are blockage strokes and rupture strokes. Most are blockage so how would breaking a nose fix that.
