What is the word used to describe the sensation of feeling ill or faint when seeing, or hearing about, another person's injury . I saw a TV program a few years ago where a doctor used this term to describe fathers who passed out in the delivery room.
This is an actual medical term, not slang like "the willies" or "heebie-jeebies".

Not very medical, but . . . "squeamish"?

Hemophobia?  ...

That properly "haemphobia" from your part of the world.

Syncope is the general medical term for fainting;
so perhaps this noun may be somehow modified to
indicate a specific cause.

Terms I heard are: - Blood phobia - Blood-Injury-Illness Phobia - Vasovagal Fainting - Vasovagal Syncope

The latter two (really the same thing with two different labels) are labeled by their physical manifestation, not the external cause. I've had a couple of episides of vasovagal fainting over the years, and as best anyone can figure out they were caused by something in the red wine I was drinking. I don't drink much red wine these days.
