Combat Application Tourniquet - Gen 7 from North American Rescue

Noted as the best prehospital tourniquet in the February 2008 supplement of The Journal of Trauma, the Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT TQ) Gen. 7 is a game-changer in emergency medical care. This genuine North American Rescue product is the fastest, safest, and most effective prehospital field tourniquet available.

The patented Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) Gen. 7 is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research. Numerous tests held by various laboratories over several years have shown that the C-A-T® can completely occlude blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.

The C-A-T is operated by turning a durable windlass system that contains a patented free-moving internal band. This combination provides the physical force characteristics necessary to occlude blood flow, also known as true circumferential pressure to the extremity.

Once the tourniquet is adequately tightened, bleeding will cease, and the windlass can be locked into place using the bilateral retaining clips. The tourniquet also features a windlass retention strap that secures via hook and loop over the retaining clips. This strap can also be used to mark the tourniquet's application time for proper medical management at the definitive care facility.

The Gen 7 version of the Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) introduces several enhancements. It features a single routing buckle for faster application, decreased blood loss, effective slack removal, fewer windlass turns, and simplified training with single protocol application standards. The windlass rod has been reinforced with increased diameter for enhanced strength and aggressive ribbing for improved grip. The bilateral windlass clip allows for rapid windlass lock and added strength. Additionally, the windlass strap has been changed from white to tactical.

With its unique dual securing system, the CAT Tourniquet Gen. 7 is extremely easy to use even under survival stress or when fine motor skills are compromised. It provides a reliable and rapid solution for controlling severe bleeding in emergency situations.

The Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) Gen. 7 is widely used by military personnel, law enforcement agencies, first responders, and healthcare professionals. Its effectiveness and ease of use have made it the go-to choice for managing life-threatening extremity hemorrhage.
