The C-A-T Combat Application Tourniquet is designed to completely occlude blood flow in an extremity to treat traumatic hemorrhage. The C-A-T uses a windlass system with an internal free-moving band to provide true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once bleeding is stopped, a hook/loop retention strap secures the tourniquet and maintains the pressure.

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 patented C-A-T is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research.
