The Purpose of the Bair Hugger Blanket

Hip replacement surgery can be uncomfortable for the body, and to help diminish time of recovery subsequent to the procedures, the forced air of the Bair warning devices are used to provide heat to your body to increase flow of blood to areas which need healing.

An increase in the flow of blood can help by enabling the body to persist in moving nutrients, and to facilitate recovery, other substances to the hip. However, it can also help extract dead cells and toxic materials that slow down the recovery process from the same location.

Approximately 50,000 Bair Hugger blankets, throughout the United States, have been distributed; they are used in approximately 80% of knee and hip replacement surgeries during postoperative recovery.

The Bair Hugger Forced Air Warming Blanket, for it to blow air that is heated onto targeted areas of the body of the patient, operates by the use of a blower and heater in tandem, through a disposable blanket, to deliver air.


Research studies discovered that these blankets have been exposing bacteria and various microorganisms to patients; these deterrents are typically found on operating floors directly on the floor, and this results in difficult to treat infections, because of deep penetration into the body.

There are airflow systems in operating rooms, which are designed specifically to force cool air to the hospital floor before being pulled away from the surgical field. However, the Bair Hugger blankets can disrupt the flow, and pull the air off the ground actually; the normal system would extract and then deposit that particular air along with contaminants back onto the body of the patient in exposed areas.

You may have sustained injuries because of a Bair Hugger blanket during surgery for hip replacement. A personal injury attorney can assist you to recover any compensation entitled to you for the cost of your suffering and pain, medical bills, and various expenses related to a Bair Hugger Infection Lawsuit.
