Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT) - North American Rescue
In a survival scenario, the very first priority is to stabilize critical injuries to yourself and others. North American Rescue's Combat Application Tourniquet is your first line of defense against traumatic bleeding. The Gen 7 CAT utilizes a durable windlass system with a free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A hook and loop windlass retention strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The CAT’s unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised.
Proven to be 100% effective in occluding blood flow in both upper & lower extremities by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research
Single Routing Buckle for faster tourniquet application, decreased blood loss, effective slack removal, fewer windlass turns, and simplified training with single protocol application standards
