The combat application tourniquet C-A-T is a small and lightweight one-handed tourniquet that completely occludes arterial blood flow in an extremity. This tourniquet 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 design has a hook-and-loop windlass strap for further securing of the windlass during patient transport.
