GT Distributors now offers Elite First Aid’s Combat Application Tourniquet. Police personnel as first responders use the C-A-T tourniquet to save lives at accident scenes across the U.S. Small and lightweight; this tourniquet is one-handed and completely occludes arterial blood flow in an extremity. The C-A-T uses a Self-Adhering Band and a Friction Adaptor Buckle to fit a wide range of extremities combined with a one-handed windlass system.
The windlass uses a free moving internal band to provide true circumferential pressure to an extremity. The windlass is then locked in place; this requires only one hand, with the Windlass Clip. The C-A-T also has a Hook-and-Loop Windlass Strap™ for further securing of the windlass during patient transport.
