What causes a bloody nose and sickness in the stomach?

My grandma is in her 70's been in the hospital for 6 days. Oxygen level is between 75 and 76 (with breathing treatments). She was getting a bloody nose everyday. The last one the doctors packed it for 3 days. She is sick to her stomach and her eyes are pussy and she is just miserable!

Hello and thank you for your question.
I am so sorry that she is having so much trouble. The oxygen levels are very low. if they have been giving her oxygen through a tube this could be a reason for her nosebleeds because oxygen is very drying to the nose and nosebleeds are common in people on oxygen. You could give her some nasal saline, sterilized salt water, to help keep her noise moistened. There are many causes for nausea but it may be from the nosebleeds. When you have a nosebleed you swallow some of the blood and blood in the stomach causes a lot of nausea.
I hope she is feeling better soon
