Hypoxic Death & the Exit Bag Changing Your Mind
Remember, it’s always OK to change your mind and this can be done up to the point where consciousness is lost. To put a stop to the process:
1. Release the elastic toggle and pull the bag off your head. 2. Turn the cylinder tap anti-clockwise until it is fully off. 3. When the pressure dial drops to zero, the system is com- pletely closed down and can be disassembled.
4. Undo the brass hexagonal nut on the regulator and dis- connect from the cylinder.
5. Put the dust caps (if available) back on the regulator and cylinder.
6. Ensure the cylinder gas tap is fully off. 7. The gas cylinder can then be re-stored (lying down) and the regulator replaced in its box to keep it clean.
