Nitrogen Gas; Flawless, peaceful, unrestricted method of execution

Nitrogen Gas; Flawless, peaceful, unrestricted method of execution
Dudley Sharp


"(Dr. Phillip) Nitschke called (nitrogen gas hypoxia) "flawless" . . .  Inhaling the pure nitrogen, patients lose consciousness immediately (in approximately 12 seconds) and die a few minutes later." ". . . extremely quick . . . no drugs . . . reliable, peaceful, available . . . " (1).

No panic nor suffocation effect with nitrogen.

"Close contact with an enclosed inert gas (as nitrogen) is lethal because it flushes oxygen from the body, but released into the open air, it quickly disperses, and is safe for others." (2) 

A sealed gas chamber is not required - just an oxygen mask and a secured prisoner.
