150 Combat Application Tourniquets


This tourniquet was developed by the US Armed Forces and is beginning to be deployed to law enforcement agencies across the nation. The CAT is an effective tool to stop bleeding in a person’s arms and legs due to massive trauma. It is small, lightweight, and is designed to completely occlude arterial blood flow in an extremity. Having a CAT on each officer’s duty belt will greatly increase the chances of a victim’s or fellow officer’s survival in situations where medical aid is not immediately available.
