Many moons ago, when I was in EMT class, our instructor gave us a cute little way to remember what 'epistaxis' is:
How does Epi pay his taxes? Through the nose!
Every time I see a nosebleed, that still comes back to me. Silly but effective.
Ep`i*stax"is (?), n. [NL., fr. Gr. upon + to drop.] Med.
Bleeding at the nose.
