North American Rescue Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT Tourniquet)

Trusted by police and military everywhere

The Combat Application Tourniquet®, introduced to the US Army in 2005 is a true one-handed tourniquet, widely credited with decreasing mortality rates due to extremity exsanguination by 85%. After an exhaustive study, the US Army of Institute Research deemed it to be 100% effective.

Now, C-A-T Resources has developed the C-A-T Gen 7. Following extensive field reviews, the C-A-T Gen 7 has been completely redesigned, making it the most effective Combat Application Tourniquet to date. The new Gen 7 is simpler to use thanks to a single application protocol, single buckle routing system and further improvements to its components and construction.


  • Single Routing Buckle
    • Faster application and effective slack removal resulting in decreased blood loss and fewer windlass turns to achieve arterial occlusion
    • Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications
  • Windlass Rod
    • Increased diameter for enhanced strength
    • Aggressive ribbing for improved grip
  • Windlass Clip
    • Bilateral beveled entry for rapid windlass lock
    • Bilateral buttress for added strength
  • Stabilization Bar
    • Reinforced, beveled contact bar maintains the plate's integrity and decreases skin pinching
  • 6.5"H x 2.4"W x 1.5"D (packaged)
  • 37.5"H (open)

Proven to be 100% effective occluding blood flow in both upper & lower extremities by the US Army's Institute of Surgical research
