Arms & Legs:
0.5x Vitality decrease from Damage (Affliction Type).
A human has 6 limbs: Left Arm, Right Arm, Left Leg, Right leg, the Torso, and the Head. Damage to the head is twice as effective as damage to the torso. Damage to the other limbs are half as effective. This only apply to Damage type wounds. For example, Burn damage will have equal scale on every limb.
A human has a base of 100 or 110 Max Vitality, depending on their Job. This max can be increased via various talents, or decreased by receiving the Tainted gene debuff Decrepify.
All talents that add max vitality add it additively, and give additional maximum health based on the character's original max health. (for example a medic (110 base vitality) with Example of Health (+20% vitality) will gain 22 extra maximum vitality.)
