February 2007 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Frank McMeen, President, West TN Healthcare:++PARTLY OVERLAID WITH ODELL IN LUNG++ "Diane saw the world as a place where people are good. You know, we encounter people who get angry and are difficult to deal with. Diane never saw that. She saw a family that loved her, that gave their lives to her. She saw a world and a community that rallied around her. She couldn't see why she was special and why the world would come to her. When people left her (they were) a much better person." STORYLINE: A woman who spent nearly 60 years of her life in an iron lung after being diagnosed with polio as a child died on Wednesday after a power failure shut down the machine that kept her breathing, her family said. Sixty-one-year-old Dianne Odell had been confined to the 7-foot (2-metre)-long machine since she was stricken by polio at 3 years old. Family members were unable to get an emergency generator working for the iron lung after a power failure knocked out electricity to the Odell family's residence near Jackson, Tennessee, about 80 miles (128 kilometres) northeast of Memphis, brother-in-law Will Beyer said. Captain Jerry Elston of the Madison County Sheriff's Department said that emergency crews were called to the scene, but could do little to help. Odell was afflicted with "bulbo-spinal" polio three years before a polio vaccine was discovered and largely stopped the spread of the crippling childhood disease. She spent her life in the iron lung, cared for by her parents and other family members. Though confined inside the 750-pound (340-kilogram) apparatus, Odell managed to get a high school diploma, take college courses and write a children's book. The iron lung that she used was a cylindrical chamber with a seal at the neck. She lay on her back in the device with only her head exposed, and made eye contact with visitors using an angled mirror above her head. The lung worked by producing positive and negative pressure on the lungs that caused them to expand and contract so that she could breathe. Iron lungs were first used to sustain life in 1928, and were largely replaced by positive-pressure airway ventilators in the late 1950s. A spinal deformity from the polio made it impossible for Odell to wear a more modern, portable breathing apparatus, so she continued to use the older machine. It is not known how many polio survivors still use iron lungs, but Odell was believed to have used it for longer than most. The President, of West Tennessee Healthcare Frank McMeen, said Odell positively affected the lives of those around her. "The most unlikely person to touch anyone's life and yet she did. You left there being inspired," he said. "Diane saw the world as a place where people are good. You know, we encounter people who get angry and are difficult to deal with. Diane never saw that. She saw a family that loved her, that gave their lives to her," he added. Odell was determined to live a full life, she earned a diploma from Jackson High School as a home-bound student and an honorary degree from Freed-Hardeman College. A voice-activated computer allowed her to write a children's book, "Less Light," about Blinky, a tiny star who dreams of becoming a wishing star. In a 2001 interview with The Associated Press, she said that she wanted to show children, especially those with physical disabilities, that they should never give up. Norbert Putnam, Music Producer said that about Odell that "she'll be remembered as someone who reminds us all to be thankful for who we are, where we are and what we have."
