Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT), Tactical Black Description
For wounds with significant hemorrhage, this is the tourniquet that the US Army relies upon. North American Rescue’s CAT utilizes a durable windlass rod system with a free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass rod is locked into place. A hook and loop strap is then applied, securing the windlass rod 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. This tourniquet features Red Tip Technology with a red elliptical tip to assist users in locating and threading while in highly stressful situations. The white security tab includes an area to record the time of application. The CAT is 6.5” x 2.4” x 1.5” packed and is 37.5 inches in length when open.
