No. Cabin pressurization is regulated only by controlling the outflow of
air from the cabin. Some cabin pressure controllers may react to loss of
air conditioning packs; some automated aircraft may kick remaining packs
into high flow mode when a pack is lost; however, when all is said and
done, cabin pressurization is simply regulated by controlling the outflow
of air from the cabin.
