    The Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T) is a single use arterial tourniquet that provides a consistent, controlled, circumferential force to limbs in an attempt to control life-threatening haemorrhage.
  • Step 1

    Place the tourniquet as proximal as possible around the affected limb. Pass the tip of the tourniquet through the inside slit of the buckle. Pull the band tight.
  • Step 2

    Pass the tip of the tourniquet through the outside slit of the buckle. The friction buckle will lock the band in place.
  • Step 3

    Pull the tourniquet very tight and securely fasten the band back on itself using the tourniquet velcro.
  • Step 4

    Twist the windlass rod until the arterial haemorrhage has ceased and the distal pulse is unable to be palpated.
  • Step 5

    Place the windlass rod inside the rod locking clip, locking it in place. Confirm that the arterial bleeding has ceased and the distal pulse is unable to be palpated. If haemorrhage is not controlled, consider additional tightening or the application of a second tourniquet (immediately adjacent to the first) and reassess.
  • Step 6

    Secure the windlass rod inside the rod locking clip with the rod securing strap. Record the time and date of application on the rod securing strap and document in the eARF as well. Ensure hospital staff are aware of the tourniquet application time.
