On October 12, 1928, the negative pressure ventilator, commonly known as the iron lung, was used clinically for the first time at Boston Children’s Hospital.
The iron lung is a device designed to assist with the breathing those who have either lost control of their diaphragm muscles or whose muscles don’t have the strength to breathe. It does this by creating an airtight seal around the body of a patient and then periodically increasing and decreasing the pressure exerted on their chest, thus moving their diaphragm for them and allowing them to breathe.

A three-year-old girl had a hemispherectomy to treat Rasmussen syndrome. This X-Ray was taken in 2002 after she had turned seven. The right hemisphere of her brain, which was completely removed, contained the language center and motor control for the left side of her body, and today she has very minor issues controlling her left arm and leg. However, she is fully bilingual in Turkish and Dutch and leads an otherwise normal life.
