The Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT) is a small and lightweight one-handed tourniquet that completely occludes arterial blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant haemorrhage.
Exact circumferential pressure is provided to the extremity via the windlass system with a free-moving internal band that the CAT incorporates. Once tightened, the windlass is locked in place when bleeding has ceased. The CAT also has a Velcro Windlass Strap for further securing of the windlass during patient transport.
- Arrests life-threatening extremity bleeding
- Small and lightweight
- Cost effective
- Can be stored easily in a pack or bag
