Patients who receive a Bair Hugger® forced air warming device during hip and knee replacement surgery face a significant risk of deep-joint infection. The air that is circulated by the forced hot air warming system is contaminated with bacteria.
When the contaminated air comes into contact with the patient’s surgical site, it can cause a serious infection in the hip or knee joint. These infections are difficult to treat and can cause devastating injury. If you or someone you know suffered a deep-joint infection following a knee or hip replacement surgery, you may be entitled to bring a lawsuit.
