- Cryobiology : The study of living organisms, organs, biological tissues or biological cells at low temperatures.
- Glycolysis : A biochemical pathway by which a molecule of glucose is oxidized to two molecules of pyruvate.
- Lactic fermentation : A form of fermentation that occurs in animal cells in the absence of oxygen.
- Metabolic acidosis : Refers to an abnormal chemical compositional state of the body that clinicians characterize as abnormally increased acidity — measured as pH reduction or hydrogen ion concentration ([H+]) increase — accompanied by abnormally reduced bicarbonate concentration ([HCO3-]) concentration in the extracellular fluid compartment (ECF) of the body, acknowledging that in most cases similar compositional abnormalities exist in the intracellular fluid compartment (ICF) as well.
- Trauma medicine : Damage inflicted on the body as the direct or indirect result of an external force, with or without disruption of structural continuity.
- Lethal triad : In the context of trauma medicine and damage control surgery, the combination of trauma induced coagulopathy, hypothermia and metabolic acidosis
- Crush injury : Physiological consequences of prolonged heavy pressure on body parts, which can be catastrophic if released suddenly without patient preparation; the crushing releases toxic substances from devitalized muscle
- Diabetic ketoacidosis : A metabolic disorder caused by a relative or absolute deficiency of insulin, and characterized by hyperglycemia, dehydration, acidosis], and excess ketones in the blood
- Peritonitis : An inflammation of the peritoneum (the serous membrane which lines part of the abdominal cavity and some of the viscera it contains).
- Toxicology : Study of the nature, effects, and detection of poisons and the treatment of poisoning.
