This is what I thought of too, but I suppose I've been conditioned by this.

comment Word or phrase that means to ascertain whether someone is alive or dead
I think "check vital state" is about as succinct as you'll find.

comment A better word for 'hot' (spicy)?
@Peter I'm not familiar with Szechuan pepper. I only know "Szechuan" from the Chinese-American dishes that bear the name but at least in my area they are never really "hot". I would not categorize black pepper or other "spicy" foods with capsaicin heat: they are not (IME) as pungent, and they affect people differently. By that I mean that someone with a high capsaicin tolerance may not tolerate wasabi, or someone who cannot tolerate capsaicin may be fine with black pepper. If one cannot handle any of these foods then the generic "I can't eat spicy food" seems appropriate.
