The Combat Application Tourniquet® (C-A-T®) from North American Rescue®, a true one-handed tourniquet that occludes the blood in both the upper and lower extremities, has been proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research.
Used to camouflage, the tactical black features the new Single Routing Buckle for faster application and decreased blood loss. It utilizes a durable windlass system and a free-moving internal band to provide true circumferential pressure to the extremity.
Designed in rescue orange to easily spot when needed in the field, this C-A-T has a proprietary red tip design and utilizes a durable windlass system and a free-moving internal band to provide true circumferential pressure to the extremity.
The trainer blue C-A-T features the proprietary red tip design and the same mechanical advantage of a band within a band. Colored blue for easy identification as a training device, it enables instructors and trainees hands-on training and tourniquet application practice with a distinct visual means to distinguish devices from personal and operational life-saving devices.
