The Exit Bag is a plastic bag which is filled with the inert gas. The bag can be easily filling with no oxygen contamination, allowing 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 in the video on the next pages. A second method is shown in the tab above. Either way, a reliable and effective bag can be assembled in 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
