The goal for this method is to produce a reliable, quick and peaceful death from hypoxia. There are 3 stages in this process and these are shown in the Video (Betty and the Exit Bag) and in fig 5.14.
• Adjust the elastic in neck of the bag so that it is a firm fit around the human neck. Then place the bag on the head across the forehead. Crush the bag down onto the head to exclude all air then open the tap on the Helium bottle. The flow of Helium at ~15 l/min fills the bag in about a minute.
• When the bag is filled with gas the Helium will begin to leak around the elastic while the bag remains fully inflated. A quick look in the mirror will enable the bag to be correctly positioned and full of Helium.
• To bring about a peaceful death, a person would exhale totally (fully empty their lungs) and hold their breath while pulling the bag down over their head. When the bag is over the head and snugly around the neck, they would take the deepest breath possible. Loss of consciousness will occur almost immediately - within one or two breaths. Death occurs few minutes later.
