Training Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT)

( 8 Reviews )

A tourniquet, at a minimum, is something that we all should carry. However, if you are going to practice successfully applying your tourniquet, you must use a dedicated practice tourniquet and not your "real world" one.

CAT (Gen 7) Trainer

No longer the last resort, the Gen 7 CAT is the most widely-fielded tourniquet in combat theatres. Quick, effective and easy to apply with one or both hands. Single-Use only. Length: 6.5" Width: 2.4" Weight: 2.7 oz. From the North American Rescue website: "The C-A-T® GEN 7 has a single routing buckle system that (1) allows for extremely fast application and effective slack removal (2) Simplified training with single protocol directions for all applications. The patented C-A-T® is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research.

C-A-T® Gen 7 Requirements Driven Enhancements:

great training aid

Don't use your actual TQs for practice. I have put the practice TQ through hundreds of reps, tightening, resetting, stretching, etc, still works like new and maintains the integrity of my first line gear. 10/10 recommend.

Confidence booster

I’ve been using this to get my 9 year old daughter to learn how to apply a tourniquet at random moments. I’ll just toss it to her and tell her where I’m “injured” and start to give her some pressure to get it on quick. Just in a week or so of doing that her confidence has started to increase and she is starting to realize that if something bad happens while we are hunting or out riding horses she has the capability to help solve the problem.
