The Bair Hugger Warming Blanket

Bair Hugger

There are many advantages to maintaining a patient’s body temperature during surgery like decreasing blood loss and recovery time. Warming blankets are used during surgery for this purpose. The Bair Hugger warming blanket releases warm air over a surgical patient’s body, but it also releases air from under the surgical table. That air then spreads throughout the operating room and causes germs and bacteria from under the table to land on the patient’s surgical site and infect the patient. The infections become very difficult to treat after a patient has become infected deep inside of a joint. Liability in Bair Hugger Warming Blanket litigation remains at issue as cases were only filed in 2015, and few settlements or verdicts have yet been reported. Only a skilled litigator of the highest quality can give Bair Hugger Warming Blanket victims a chance at obtaining compensation for their complications and damages.
