Caption: MODEL RELEASED. With only his head exposed to the outside world, James Jennings, a baby born prematurely at 28 weeks, lies in a miniature iron lung in the neonatal unit at University College Hospital, London. An iron lung is a type of negative pressure ventilator, a device that exerts external pressure to cause the lungs to expand and contract. Here, a nurse is feeding James using a syringe connected to a tube passed into his nose.
