NORTH AMERICAN RESCUE C.A.T. Tourniquet - BLACK
C.A.T. = COMBAT APPLICATION TOURNIQUET
Made by: NORTH AMERICAN RESCUE
The 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
The C-A-T® utilizes a durable windlass system with a 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 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.
Color of the tab may vary. We guarentee these are 100% authentic and are NOT fakes or knock offs. There are tons of copies on the market that will snap at the windlass bar when you tighten them.
