The Bair Hugger is a forced-air warming blanket for patients undergoing surgery. It helps anesthetized patients regulate their body temperature and prevent hypothermia. It works by forcing hot air through a hose into a special disposable blanket that is draped over the patient.
Studies show that hot air patient warming devices like 3M’s Bair Hugger can contaminate surgical sites with bacteria-laden air. Lawsuits have been filed by people who developed deep joint infections after surgeries gone terribly wrong. The Bair Hugger is supposed to reduce the risk of infections, but critics say it may actually cause infections by blowing bacteria-contaminated air into sterile surgical sites. The risk is especially serious for patients undergoing heart surgery to implant artificial valves, or joint replacement surgery to implant prosthetic hips and knees.
A number of lawsuits have been filed across the country alleging that the heat generated by the device can redirect air circulation during surgery. This change, according to the lawsuits, can cause bacteria and other contaminants on the operating room floor to become airborne. As a result, patients have a greater risk of developing MRSA or other hospital-acquired infections, according to the suits.
Many of the lawsuits are by patients who underwent hip or knee replacement surgery and were left with serious deep joint infections. In many cases, these infections required additional surgeries and painful recoveries such as the removal and replacement of the artificial joint.
Do I need a lawyer?
Expert witness fees are very expensive. They can often cost several thousand dollars per day. The expert witness fees must be paid for consulting, which includes reviewing records, examining a patient, and discussing findings with the lawyer, as well as for depositions and for trial. Lawyers who represent plaintiffs on a contingency basis (meaning the lawyer only gets paid if you win) usually hire the experts for the case. Without a lawyer to advance these costs, you may find yourself unable to afford the experts you need to prove your case.
