The Combat Application Tourniquet C-A-T®
The Combat Application Tourniquet C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet that completely occludes arterial and venous blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant haemorrhage.
The C-A-T® uses a windlass system with a free moving internal band to provide true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once tightened and bleeding has stopped, the windlass is locked in place. A Velcro© strap is then applied for further securing of the windlass during casualty evacuation
For those requiring a high visibility option.
Civilian Emergency Medical Service (EMS) teams now have access to the military tested and approved C-A-T® tourniquets for their trauma scene needs. Police personnel as first responders use the C-A-T® tourniquet to save lives at accident scenes.
