MISSISSIPPI BAIR HUGGER LAWSUIT INFORMATION FAQ
What is Bair Hugger?
Bair Hugger is a forced air surgical warming blanket marketed to prevent regulate patients’ body temperatures during surgery. The system includes the surgical blanket, warming units, and accessories.
How does it work?
During surgery, warm air is forced through a hose that is connected to a disposable blanket that covers the patient, releasing warmed air around the patient’s body. The warm air circulates under the surgical table and back up to the patient before, during, and after surgery.
Why is it dangerous?
When the surgical site is exposed with bacteria from Bair Hugger, dangerous infections spread to the patient’s incision, causing problems such as MRSA and sepsis. These conditions are very difficult to treat, especially when they reside deep in the joints.
