The design of the iron lung was subsequently improved by using a bellows attached directly to the machine, and John Haven Emerson modified the design to make production less expensive.
These drawbacks led to the development of more modern positive-pressure ventilators and the use of positive-pressure ventilation by tracheostomy.
Parents waited fearfully every summer to see if it would strike. That year, there were over 27,000 cases and more than 6,000 deaths due to polio in the United States, with over 2,000 deaths in New York City alone. In developed countries during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, improvements were being made in community sanitation, including improved sewage disposal and clean water supplies.Better hygiene meant that infants and young children had fewer opportunities to encounter and develop immunity to polio.Exposure to poliovirus was therefore delayed until late childhood or adult life, when it was more likely to take the paralytic form.Positive pressure ventilators reduced mortality in bulbar patients from 90% to 20%.In the Copenhagen epidemic of 1952, large numbers of patients were ventilated by hand ("bagged") by medical students and anyone else on hand, because of the large number of bulbar polio patients and the small number of ventilators available.
