    how a heater cooler worksIf you’ve contracted a dangerous bacterial infection after heart valve replacements or coronary artery bypass graft surgery – and possibly received a warning letter from a hospital regarding a defective machine used during your operation – you need to contact Carr & Carr immediately.

    Carr & Carr is currently investigating cases for patients who have developed severe bacterial infections associated with the use of a heater-cooler device used during heart surgeries. 

    Heater-cooler devices used in heart surgeries have been linked to serious bacterial infections, which may be fatal in some patients.

    According to the FDA, there is potential for nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) contaminated water contained in the heater-cooler tanks to transfer from the device into the operating room, where it can travel into the patient’s open chest.

    Obviously, bacteria-contaminated water particles in an open chest are a health concern.
