What Is a Bair Hugger

The Bair Hugger was invented by Cr. Scott D. Augustine, an anesthesiologist in Minnesota. Dr. Augustine’s invention changed surgical practices and made him a fortune. The device, which works like a forced-air heater, carries warmed air through a hose to a special blanket that is draped over a patient before and during a surgical procedure.

The Dangers

Dr. Augustine asserts that his invention is a danger to surgical patients receiving implant devices like artificial heart valves and joints. The forced air, he says, can spread bacteria associated with hospital-acquired infections, which can cause life-threatening results. These infections are incredibly dangerous, especially when you are already vulnerable from a surgical procedure.
