Have you ever wanted to learn exactly how an iron lung works to treat polio? If so, then the interactive online exhibit found on Science Museum London's Brought to Life website on the iron lung will be exceptionally helpful. Here visitors will find a 360-degree view of an iron lung complete with sound as well as profiles of iron lung patients. Back on the homepage, visitors will find an excellent discussion about "What it means to be well", in a link of the same name. According to the article, "society's medical system, religious beliefs and cultural values" all determine what it means to be well, and the discussion moves on to contrast the written complaints of aches and pains of a naval administrator in the late 1600s to the way we would handle them now. Visitors also shouldn't miss the "Timeline" here, as it documents key events in medical history, such as when Ibn Al-Nafis discovered the pulmonary circulation system in 1242 CE.
