While he was working at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, Ian Donald (later Regius Professor of Midwifery, University of Glasgow and a pioneer of diagnostic ultrasound) collaborated with Albert Claireaux and Robert Steiner on histological and radiological studies of hyaline membrane disease. In 1953, Donald and Steiner published the first radiological study of a series of cases. The success of this research stimulated Donald's interest in imaging technologies.

Learning to breathe : the history of newborn resuscitation, 1929 to 1970.

The thesis argues that the neonatal network played a fundamental role in directing neonatal research and care during the 1950s and 1960s, and illustrates common trends such as the move towards super-specialization in medicine, the increasingly technological nature of medical care and the growing authority of science in the clinic.

Metabolic Functions of the Lung, Disorders and Associated Pathologies

This review focuses on the metabolic functions of the lung, perhaps the least known, and mainly, in the lipid metabolism and blood-adult lung vascular endothelium interaction.

The radiographic appearances of hyaline disease of the lungs in the newborn.

Two successive radiographs of the chest at intervals of several hours were obtained in a newborn infant who died after thirty-two hours, in the hope that the description of the findings will stimulate others to carry out radiographic studies.
