Q3. Last week, the Guinness Book of World Records declared the Dallas-born lawyer and author star Paul Alexander as the longest-living Iron Lung patient in history. The Iron Lung is a type of Negative Pressure Ventilator developed in the 1920s as a solution to the respiratory paralysis that occurred in advanced cases of this disease. It became the standard medical equipment in all major hospitals in the mid-20th century with wards full of them.

Which disease was the Iron Lung used for?
