Victims who’ve developed severe infections from the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system used during joint replacement surgeries may be able to seek justice & compensation
Since 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has logged hundreds of adverse consumer event reports–including reports about multiple patient deaths–relating to 3M Bair Hugger® warming systems.
The 3M Bair Hugger® forced-air warming system, used to maintain patient temperature during procedures, caused a variety of serious medical emergencies including:
-Infections in the affected joints
-Infections that required additional surgeries
-Infections that led to amputations
-Infections that led to deaths
The FDA said it was aware of infection concerns with the blankets posed by victims in 2017, but the agency recommended that healthcare providers continue using them as directed.
The FDA sent a letter to healthcare providers highlighting the benefits of patient warming devices during surgery–including less blood loss, faster recovery, and decreased infection risk.
The letter said the FDA reviewed medical research and data–and the agency also pledged to “actively monitor this situation.”
Victims of the most serious 3M Bair Hugger® warming system complications say they developed methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)—an antibiotic-resistant infection that can lead to skin infection, sepsis, pneumonia, and bloodstream infections.
Models named in the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system lawsuits included:
Many of the victims bringing a lawsuit had knee and/or hip replacement surgeries resulting in deep-joint infections that were difficult and expensive to treat.
The lawsuits claim the infections caused by the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system led to amputations and deaths.
Most of the lawsuits focus on the most serious 3M Bair Hugger® warming system complications.
The various lawsuits lay out how victims developed serious infections after surgeries involving the use of these devices.
Some victims lost limbs to infection, and many families had a loved one die.
We urge victims of the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system and the families that suffered with them to get a free, private case evaluation from our network of attorneys.
