hematemesis (hee-muh-TEM-i-sis, HEHM-uh-TEM-i-sis, hee-mah-tuh-MEE-sis) - n., vomiting blood.


Not a good thing to do: potentially quite serious, especially if you lose a lot of blood. In case you need it, the ICD-10 code is K92.0. Coined in the early 19th century from Greek roots hemato-, of blood + emesis, vomiting. And no, I don't know how or why this ended up on my list.
