Transcript of Apply a Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT)

Apply Tourniquet
Apply proximal pressure to bleeding site, if possible
Route the band around the limb and pass the tip through the inside slit of the buckle.
Pass the tip through the outside slit of the buckle. The friction buckle will lock the band in place.
Control Bleeding

If bleeding is not controlled, consider additional tightening or applying a second tourniquet proximal side by side to the first
Secure
Secure the windlass inside the clip with the strap
