North American Rescue CAT Tourniquet - Combat Application Tourniquet
The Official CAT Tourniquet of the U.S. Army
The patented Combat Tourniquet is the recipient of the "Top 10 Greatest Inventions" Award by the U.S. Army. After undergoing stringent testing from the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research, the C-A-T® was found to be 100% effective in stopping blood flow in both the arms and legs. In fact, when a life threatening wound with considerable hemorrhage occurs to an extremity, the C-A-T® completely prohibits blood from continuing to flow — making the C-A-T® a truly combat-worthy and lifesaving instrument.
