Did a Bair Hugger Surgical Blanket Cause Your Infection?

For the last several decades, Bair Hugger warming blankets have been used to keep patients warm during surgery, especially hip and knee replacements. During surgery, a patient’s body can rapidly cool due to the exposure of the incision and the relaxed state induced by the anesthesia. To remedy this problem, the Bair Hugger surgical blankets were invented to help circulate warm air over a patient during surgery.

In 2002, the maker of the Bair Hugger blankets came out against his own product saying that the blankets may allow bacteria to spread and therefore cause dangerous infections during surgery. These infections have caused countless numbers of patients to suffer anti-biotic resistant infections that can only be treated with more surgeries to clean and remove infected tissue. Consequently, there are a multitude of lawsuits arising against 3M, the current manufacturer of the Bair Hugger warming blanket.
