The Bair Hugger is a patient warming system that helps to keep patients warm and comfortable. The Bair Hugger system has been utilized by 210 million people. The medical works by surrounding the patient with warm air, so their body temperature can easily be kept in check, preventing it from dropping too low. It is therefore believed that Bair Hugger use will result in decreased recovery times. Although it was alleged that the warm blankets lead to serious bacterial infections that required additional surgery or amputations. Despite 3M winning the first trial in a Bair Hugger lawsuit nearly 5,000 more plaintiffs stand to hold 3M accountable for the harm and injuries caused by the warm blanket.
Patients who had a hip or knee replacement procedure that has pain and inflammation persist after the projected recovery time should seek a second medical opinion to determine if there is an infection. If the infection is present, then it is important to determine if the Bair Hugger medical device was used during the surgical procedure and if such usage is the cause of the pathogenic infection. The symptoms and complications of an induced infection by the 3M Bair Hugger include, but are not limited to:
A peculiar story about the Bair Hugger surgical medical device is that the inventor Dr. Scott D. Augustine stated the apparatus he created posed a risk given that the forced air can spread bacteria associated with hospital-acquired infections. Due to internal conflicts with his board of directors, Dr. Scott decided to sell his stake in the company in early 2000. After several years, the inventor wrote a letter to the current company 3m regarding the dangers of the Bair Hugger. The old company took his warnings lightly and assumed that he was simply trying to damage the reputation of his old company that he was no longer part of.
The current company 3m failed to be impartial and prioritize patient safety first. Regardless of the internal conflict the company was having at the time they should have ensured that the medical device was compliant with all the industry standards and safe for the consumer. 3M board members needed to test their medical devices to disqualify that such alleged product warnings were even a possibility!
