A Note of Caution The RP Test score serves only as a guide.
circumstances and preferences will always influence a person’s decision. There are people for whom a plastic Exit bag over their head will never be a viable option, no matter how peaceful and reliable the method.
This may be because of an individual’s particular aesthetic concern and have nothing to do with the method’s high reliability physiologically. Nevertheless, if this is a real concern, the method will not be considered, irrespective of the high RP Test score.
Similarly, the ‘availability’ of a particular method can differ from individual to individual. The comparison above suggests that helium would be preferred above cyanide.
However, if an individual has recently become so disabled through illness that the use of an Exit Bag is physically impossible, and yet that same person has access to cyanide powder, the final choice will clearly not be determined by the highest RP Test score.
See Table 1 which provides the overall RP Test scores for the six approaches described in this book.
