Recently, Bair Hugger forced air warming blanket devices from 3M Co. have
been linked to increased rates of serious prosthetic joint infection and
deep joint infection. Used in the operating room to keep patients warm
before and during surgery, the devices have been connected with increased
contaminant circulation leading to infection. Hare Wynn is currently accepting
cases involving total hip or knee replacement or resurfacing patients
who were implanted with a prosthetic joint prior to 2009, required subsequent
revision surgery, and developed a severe infection requiring surgical
intervention following the use of a Bair Hugger device.

Common Consequences of Severe Joint Infection
Both severe prosthetic joint infection and deep joint infection have serious,
Treatment for such infections can be costly, life-altering, and may include
any of the following:
- Surgical intervention
- Long-term IV antibiotics
- Infection disease/wound specialty care
Certain individuals are more susceptible to post-surgery infection, including
those who have diabetes, compromised immune systems, are smokers, or are
morbidly obese. However, if you are an otherwise healthy individual who
suffered a serious infection after the use of a Bair Hugger forced air
warming blanket device, you may be entitled to just compensation to assist
with associated damages.
