North American Rescue CAT Combat Application Tourniquet - OEM

North American Rescue (NAR) Patented CAT Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) NSN# 6515-01-521-7976 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 completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.

The CAT tourniquet utilizes a durable windlass system with a patented 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 windlass retention 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.

The patented Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) featuring the proprietary red tip design and the mechanical advantage of a band within a band has been the Official Tourniquet of the U.S. Army since 2005. The innovations in the CAT are protected by U.S. Patent Nos. 7,842,067 and 7,892,253.

    Posted by Julia on 3rd Apr 2016

    My review is meaningless compared to the limbs and lives saved by this tourniquet. I have one with me everywhere I go. Not looking forward to using one, but it could save a life someday.

    Christmas gift

    Posted by Chris on 13th Nov 2015

    I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my grandson Kevin Massey. He is a firefighter/EMT Swat team leader and he wanted to add this item to his belt.

    I hope he will like it.
