In extreme cases, infections caused by the Bair Hugger warming blankets can force doctors to consider amputation of the affected areas. Some patients who have suffered serious infections from the Bair Hugger blankets have had an arm or leg amputated in order to prevent the spread of the deadly infection. The loss of a limb can result in high settlement amounts due to the significant effect it has on the lives of the patient affected, as well as their family members.
Other Bair Hugger Side-Effects
Multiple studies conducted between 2011 and 2013 have found that Bair Hugger warming blankets carry a higher risk for contaminating surgical sites than other warming methods. Specifically, Bair Hugger blankets create a significant increased risk of deep joint infection. The manner in which the device works has posed serious questions for researchers and doctors alike, as it has been noted that forced-air warming causes an increase in airborne particles near the surgical sites. Reports of bacterial infections and soft tissue infections have been reported. Despite the known adverse side-effects of the Bair Hugger warming blankets, they continue to be utilized at hundreds of hospitals throughout the United States.
