On or about October 21, 2015, this website published a page entitled “Heater-Cooler Lawsuit,” which suggested that an October 2015 FDA Safety Communication regarding Heater-Cooler Devices included the Bair Hugger Warming Blanket. The devices at issue in the FDA Safety Communication provide heated and/or cooled water to 1) oxygenator heat exchangers, 2) cardioplegia (paralysis of the heart) heat exchangers, and/or 3) warming/cooling blankets, whereas the Bair Hugger Warming Blanket is a forced air device that does not use water. We have corrected the page in an attempt to make this distinction.
On or about July 20, 2015 and August 28, 2015, this website published pages entitled, respectively, “Bair Hugger Lawsuit” and “Bair Hugger Knee Infection.” As originally published, these pages referenced certain studies cited on a separate website that purportedly linked the Bair Hugger Warming Blanket to an increased risk of infection. It has been brought to our attention that these studies may not draw such a conclusion and that the information relied on by this website may have been inaccurate. We have removed any reference to the studies from our website.
Attorney Group strives to provide accurate information to its readers. To the extent the webpages cited above contained inaccurate information, we regret the error.
