soldiers use the C-A-T® tourniquet to stop arm or leg
blood flow due to injury on the battlefield...
The Combat Application Tourniquet® (C-A-T®)
(Patent Pending) is a small and lightweight one-handed
tourniquet that completely occludes arterial blood flow in
an extremity. The C-A-T® has revolutionized battlefield care
for the military user, given its ISR (Institute of Surgical
Research) confirmed effective function and its lightweight
(59 grams) design, less than ½ the weight of like
products. Soldiers have come to rely on its compact design
and ease of storage (folded 6 inch length) as they prepare
to enter combat.
