Dying

     The creature is unconscious.
     The creature must make death saving throws.
     This condition ends immediately on the creature when it regains hit points.

Dropping to 0 hit points or fewer subjects an adventurer to this condition. Monsters normally die when they drop to 0 hit points, so this condition applies to them only in exceptional situations. See “Dying and Death".
