Fast, easy, effective! The Combat Application Tourniquet® (C-A-T®) is probably the most well-known and most used extremity tourniquet in the world. Recommended by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care, it is used in the military, police, civilian rescue and mountain rescue and helps to efficiently prevent massive blood loss in severe extremity injuries. The C-ATourniquet® can be used on the arm or on the leg and bleeding is stopped by turning the windlass rod.
In Generation 7, the handling of the C-A-Tourniquet® has been further improved. A more solid, ergonomic toggle makes gripping and turning easier. The newly designed buckle is single routing, decreasing blood loss and makes for an even more effective tightening.
The Blue CAT tourniquet is for training purposes in an attempt to prevent it from being used, after training operations, on a patient in the field.
