A method to end one’s life in a reliable and peaceful way that requires no access to drugs, gases or specialist equipment has been considered impossible, but reports persist of people being able to achieve this. It has long been recognised that this could be important, especially for people living in extremely restrictive situations, or under close surveillance. Examples include the elderly with limited resources and/ or mobility who are confined to nursing homes, those incarcerated in psychiatric or correctional institutions with little or no hope of release, or perhaps people engaged in espionage, and who find themselves captured and about to be interrogated.
