Serious complications and conditions attributed to the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system


The lawsuits claim the infections caused by the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system led to amputations and deaths.

The various lawsuits lay out how victims developed serious infections after surgeries involving the use of these devices.

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.

Some victims lost limbs to infection, and many families had a loved one die.

Victims of the more serious medical complications caused by the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system have developed methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)--an antibiotic-resistant infection that causes skin infections, sepsis, pneumonia, and various bloodstream infections.

Models that are targets of the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system lawsuits included:

  • Model 775
  • Model 750
  • Model 505
  • Model 500

Cases filed against the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system are on the rise


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has logged hundreds of adverse consumer event reports since 2013 relating to 3M Bair Hugger® warming systems–including reports about multiple patient deaths.

The FDA said it was aware of infection concerns with the blankets posed by victims, but the agency recommended in August 2017 that hospitals and surgical facilities should continue using them as directed.

The FDA sent a letter to hospitals and surgical facilities 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 promised to “actively monitor this situation.”

Since approving the first 3M Bair Hugger® warming system in 1987, the FDA has issued 14 or more additional clearances for improved versions of the devices.

2019 5,659 Bair Hugger® lawsuits had been filed and 5,036 remained pending

2018 Manufacturer 3M won the first bellwether trial in Minneapolis

2017 The MDL judge selected five cases for Bellwether Trials

2015 A federal panel combined the first 14 3M Bair Hugger® lawsuits into a multidistrict litigation

2013 – 2015 More than a dozen additional patients filed lawsuits in federal courts

2013 Patient Tommy Walton filed the first 3M Bair Hugger® lawsuit for $1 million.

1987 FDA approved 3M Bair Hugger® as a surgical warming device

We believe that victims of the 3M Bair Hugger® warming system and the families that lost members deserve both compensation and justice starting with a free, private case evaluation.
