A true one-handed tourniquet, widely credited with decreasing mortality rates due to extremity exsanguination by 85%. Simpler to use thanks to a single application protocol, single buckle routing system and further improvements to its components and construction.
- Faster application and effective slack removal resulting in decreased blood loss and fewer windlass turns to achieve arterial occlusion
- Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications
Proven to be 100% effective in occluding blood flow in both upper & lower extremities by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research
North American Rescue (NAR) patented Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) NSN# 6515-01-521-7976 is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the US Army’s Institute of Surgical Research. Tests proved the CAT completely occluded blood flow of an extremity of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.
The CAT Tourniquet utilizes a durable windlass system. With a patented free-moving internal band, it provides true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass will lock into place. A hook and loop windlass retention strap once applied, maintains pressure during casualty evacuation. The CAT Tourniquets unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips.
