Bair Hugger® Lawsuits
The Bair Hugger® is a forced-air warming device used to warm patients during total hip or knee replacements. The device forces warm air into a blanket used to cover patients during surgery and regulate the patient’s temperature.
Injuries and Allegations
Hundreds of cases have been filed in the District of Minnesota, where 3M manufactured the device. The complaints allege that the warning system allows bacteria to flow into the surgical site causing deep joint infections.
Deep joint infections can include methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), sepsis and other serious infections. Treatment for infections include additional surgeries, antibiotic therapy and in serious cases, amputation.
