The Peaceful Pill eHandbook Connecting the Exit Bag to the Cylinder
There are a few first steps before the Exit Bag can be connected to the cylinder. Firstly, the oxygen tube should be taped to the inside of the Exit Bag. This can be done with ‘Micropore’ tape or ‘Leuko- flex’ tape show in fig 5.20. Both tapes grip well but are also easily removed for repositioning. The recommended width of the tape is one inch (~2.5cm).
Insert the end of the tube into the open end of the bag. Push the tube up inside the bag to the end. Using the tape, place a number of strips over the tube to hold it in position.

It is easiest to do this with both hands working inside the bag. Ensure the tape is placed over the tube at regular intervals, right up to the tube’s open end. This will require approximately eight pieces of tape.

Tape the hose to the inside of the mouth of the bag, close to its open end. Use two pieces of tape to fasten the hose at the bag mouth to ensure it will not dislodge.
