Noted as the best prehospital tourniquet in the February 2008 supplement of The Journal of Trauma.

The patented C-A-T is a true one-handed tourniquet which has been proven to be 100% effective at occluded blood flow of an extremity in an event of a traumatic wound. The Gen 7 CAT uses a durable windlass system with a patented free-moving internal band that provides true circumferential pressure to the wounded extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A hook and loop retention strap ensures the windlass maintains pressure during evacuation. The CAT's dual securing system is intuitive and avoids of the use of difficult to use screws and clips during high stress.

NEW Single Routing Buckle for faster application, decreased blood loss, effective slack removal, fewer windlass turns, and simplified training with single protocol application standards
