Objective: The objective of this study was to assess the level of awareness regarding primary home management of epistaxis among high- and middle-school students and their teachers. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in December 2018 by distributing a paper-based questionnaire to high-and middle-school students and teachers in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Results: The study included 706 individuals (53.4% males and 46.6% females) with a mean age of 16.58 ± 5.57 years. Based on the correlation between our variables, 57.5% of the participants had a good knowledge score, while only 3.5% had an excellent score. Male high-school students were significantly more knowledgeable than female middle-school students. Conclusion: Awareness of first-aid management of epistaxis was fair. However, more integrated educational resources should be made available for the general population and school students and teachers.
