Finally, parts of Chapter 6, ‘The respirator and the mechanisation of normal breathing’, have been developed alongside my co-authors Jaipreet Virdi and Jenny Hutton and will feature in the forthcoming edited collection Patient Voices in Britain, 1840–1948: Historical and Policy Perspectives, published by Manchester University Press.
