If you get poisoned, your vitality gradually decreases as time passes. The electrocardiogram (ECG) will display the word <POISON> while you are poisoned.

[Blood loss]
If you get attacked and lose lots of blood, your movement speed slows, and your vitality decreases as you move. The ECG displays the word <BLEED> while you are losing blood.

[Virus gauge]
The virus gauge on the status screen shows the player's virus infection rate. If it reaches 100%, the player dies regardless of his/her remaining vitality.

[Crawling part 1]
If you receive too much damage, your player will start crawling on the floor. While you are crawling, you can't enter certain rooms and perform certain attacks.
