A DOCTOR has revealed a plan to create an organ transplant that could kill you if you forget to deactivate it once a day.
Fertility advocate Dr Philip Nitschke is designing lethal implantable devices for people who may have dementia.
Users who have it installed will have to press the button once a day to prevent toxins from leaking out of the device.
His concept means that if someone recovers from dementia, they forget to press a button – and thus end their life.
Dr. Nitschke told The Independent: “When a person has dementia, today in some places they can quite legitimately fill out a piece of paper 10 years ago, when they are mentally strong that ‘if I am like like this, kill me’.
“Now, 10 years later, a doctor can come in, read every scrap of paper, and even though you don’t know which way is up or down, legally inject you and end your life. That makes a lot of people feel quite uncomfortable, and certainly makes me feel uncomfortable.
“So what we’re doing here is some sort of implant that you have to turn off every day. When you forget why you shut down something beeping, you’re dead.
“That puts the responsibility back on people and allows them to get what they want, which is they don’t want to live like a vegetable, no one is prepared to end their lives.”
He adds that it can beep for “a day or two” before activating to ensure that dementia has progressed far enough – and so that dementia-free users don’t simply is forget.
It comes after he designed a coffin-like capsule that would allow people to end their lives – and could be used in Switzerland from next year.
The Sarco Suicide Case allows the user to lie down and self-activate the process within minutes.
Individuals were asked a series of questions before they could press a button, which brought oxygen levels down to critical levels.
Nitrogen fills the 3D printing device, rapidly reducing the amount of oxygen from 21% to just 1% in about 30 seconds.
Then there is a feeling of “disorientation” and “euphoria”, before they eventually pass out.
Death occurs from hypoxia (low amount of oxygen in the body’s tissues) and CO2 deficiency (reduced carbon dioxide in the blood), followed by severe hypoxia and carbon dioxide.
About 1,300 people took their own lives by assisted suicide in Switzerland last year.
The Swiss government has yet to clarify whether it intends to allow the use of the capsules.
