A tourniquet is a must-have piece for any first aid kit. The legendary CAT is a long time favourite, an easy and sure choice for any IFAK or medic bag. Lightweight and very easy to use.

Massive bleeding is not unheard of in civilian life. Everyday traffic is one risk or something can happen at work. If you fantasize of saving the day, carry a tourniquet!

Why a tourniquet?

The modern battlefield and mass shootings have shown that the risk of having to amputate a limb because of a tourniquet was applied is not really an issue, while blood loss is among the most common reason for loss of life. This has changed the approach to tourniquets and instead of the last option to treat limbic hemorrhage, they are now pretty much the first thing you do. There's not an IFAK on the market today which doesn't include a CAT.

For more info, here's a clear article with dos and don'ts along with other verified info.

CAT or SOFTT-W?

Both of these tourniquets are superb, but there are some subtle differences. The CAT is a bit easier to use one-handed and lighter (65 g / 2.29 oz). The SOFTT-W is extremely durable an can be easily buckled on or off. It's also a bit heavier (110 g / 3.88 oz) but folds into a flatter package for easy carry.

The CAT is often preferred for personal use as a part of an IFAK whilst the SOFTT-W is better suited for CLS and medic use. Nevertheless, both work perfectly in any role and the most important factor in choosing a tourniquet is probably personal preference!

Hinta voi tuntua suolaiselta, joten kannattaa hankkia näitä yksi harjoittelukäyttöön ja yksi sitten tositilanteiden varalta. Olen kuullut usein valitusta, kun "nämä eivät kestä". Huvittavaa ko.lauseessa on se, että näiden on tarkoitus pelastaa henki YHDEN KERRAN, eli jos mahdollista niin "kovaan käyttöön" tulevaa ei tulisi runnuttaa jatkuvasti treenimielessä. Toimii henk.koht.kiristyssiteenä ressinkin alla hyvin helposti
