- A nose bleeds when blood vessels in the septum experience a break. This could be caused by a number of things, from an injury to cold.
- There is a space behind the nose which is called the nasal cavity.
- You breathe air through your nose and the air is then filtered by a lot of tiny little hairs that are just inside the nostril. They help to remove dirt and dust so that you don’t breathe it in.
- Present at the roof of the nose, the ethmoid bone separates the nasal cavity and brain.
- The ethmoid bone is one of the bones that make up the orbit of the human eye.
- The nasal cavity is a large space found inside the head that is above and behind the nose.
- Air passing through the nasal cavity is warmed to match body temperature.
- Dust and other particles are removed from the nasal cavity by short hairs.
- The base of the nasal cavity is called the roof of the mouth.
