Product Description

The North American Rescue CAT Tourniquet 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 significant hemorrhage. 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.

Product Enhancements: * Windlass rod is twice as strong as before with an increased diameter and improved grip * Reinforced windlass clip & highly visible security tab includes a writeable area to record the time of application * Featuring NAR's Red Tip Technology™ with a red elliptical tip to assist user in locating and threading during application Special Features: * Awarded as one of the “Top 10 Greatest Inventions” by the U.S. Army * Official Tourniquet of the U.S. Army * Used by both conventional and Special Operation forces * Proven to be 100% effective in occluding blood flow in both upper & lower extremities by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research * True, one-handed application tourniquet * Quickly controls life-threatening extremity bleeding * Recommended by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care * Designed to perform in all weather conditions * Small and cost-effective Source of product images, video and description is courtesy of North American Rescue LLC narescue.com.
