You must be to young to remember Iron Lungs they use to put patients in. Google is your friend. TB is very very contagious it's an airborne pathogen. Yes, now it is survivable.

I can't tell if you're trolling or honestly confused.

Iron Lung was for polio. Makes paralyzed lungs keep breathing, which has nothing whatsoever to do with TB.

TB is treated with antibiotics, and is very treatable. Unless you get a resistant strain, in which case you'll be locked up in an isolation ward indefinitely.

(But seriously OP, coughing up blood is something to get checked out ASAP. There are a lot of potentially life-threatening problems beyond TB that could cause that.)
