I live in Melbourne Australia and am currently working with 2 people in iron lungs - one woman is 80 years old and has been in the lung for 50 years due to polio. The other is a young man of 43 with muscular dystrophy. They appear scarey and ancient but they have provided these 2 people a chance at life that a tracheostomy style ventilator could not. Fantastic photos by the way. Cheers
