North American Rescue C-A-T® Combat Application Tourniquet (GEN 7)

The North American Rescue CAT Tourniquet GEN7 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 CAT Tourniquet completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.

The C-A-T® uses a Self-Adhering Band and a Friction Adaptor Buckle to fit a wide range of extremities combined with a one-handed windlass system. The windlass uses a free moving internal band to provide true circumferential pressure to an extremity. The windlass is then locked in place; this requires only one hand, with the Windlass Clip. The C-A-T® also has a Hook-and-Loop Windlass Strap for further securing of the windlass 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 North American Rescue’s Red Tip Technology™ with a red elliptical tip to assist user in locating and threading during application
