The Exit plastic bag is the bag which is filled with the inert gas. The bag is designed to enable simple filling with no contamination with oxygen, providing a straight forward way for one to suddenly immerse oneself in inert gas.
1. Making an Exit Bag
While different people make slightly different bags, the standard Exit Bag involves a plastic bag of:
• a reasonable size • a suitable soft plastic • a neck band of elastic that allows the bag to make a snug, but not tight, fit around a person’s neck
The method used by Nurse Betty is shown and a reliable and effective bag can be assembled in just a few minutes. The components are:
Plastic bag - PVC 35cm x 50cm x 50 micron PVC is a good size. Or a large polyester ‘oven bag’ see ‘A & B’
• 1 metre of 10 mm wide elastic, ‘D’ • 1 toggle (or other fastener) to adjust elastic length • 1 roll of 20mm sticky tape ‘C’ (Micropore or equivalent) • 1 small roll of ~ 35 mm plastic duct tape • Pair of sharp scissors
