This is a great word. Wikipedia explains it as:

“Sangfroid is an English term borrowed from French; sang meaning "blood" and froid meaning "cold". Though the direct translation is "cold-blooded", sangfroid is not a synonym. While "cold-blooded" refers to ruthlessness and disregard for humanity or feeling, sangfroid merely describes an icy calm, a steadiness of nerves in the face of unsteadying conditions.”
