Details

N.A. Rescue Combat Application Tourniquet, Laboratory Tested and Combat Proven.

The patented C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research. Tests proved that the C-A-T® completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.

The C-A-T® utilizes a durable windlass system with a patented 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 C-A-T®’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.

The patented Combat Application Tourniquet® (C-A-T®) featuring the proprietary red tip design and the mechanical advantage of a band within a band has been the Official Tourniquet of the U.S. Army since 2005. The innovations in the C-A-T® are protected by U.S. Patent Nos. 7,842,067 and 7,892,253.

Stopped me in my tracks

by

While I have not used this yet I know it is a good addition to my personal first aid kit.

Good price on the same type of tourniquet used by my agency.

Good price on a vital piece of equipment for my personal trauma bag.

Q&A's:

"is it possible to decontaminate this and use it again?"

Tourniquet's are meant to be used only once. Fully decontaminating this product would not be possible.

"What are the dimensions / measurements of this tourniquet? Is it compact enough to carry on a police officer's duty belt?"

This tourniquet can be folded in a few different ways that would give you multiple dimensions. It is compact enough to carry on a police officers duty belt. We see a lot of officers ordering this specific tourniquet.

"is it possible to decontaminate this and use it again?"

Tourniquets are only taken off at the hospital when the blood loss can be properly stopped, so you wouldn't even get it back because the first place it would go after being taken off is a hazardous materials trash can.
