RATS Gen 2 (HiVis Green)
The Rapid Application Tourniquet System (R.A.T.S. U.S. Pat. No. 9,168,044) is the fastest tourniquet on the market and is used to stop massive hemorrhaging due to trauma. The R.A.T.S. uses a solid elastic core of proprietary material with a polyester sheath, combined with a patented locking mechanism to make an incredibly fast tourniquet to apply to self or others. No other tourniquet compares to the R.A.T.S. when being used under stress in terms of time or ease of use.
Generation 2 Features:
NEW: Longer to accommodate larger limbs!
The R.A.T.S. is:
•Easy to learn and use
•Simple design allows for one handed use
•Takes up minimal space allowing you to store almost anywhere
•Works on all limb sizes, i.e. adults, working dogs and children
•Proven to be effective in occluding blood flow in both upper & lower
extremities by the U.S. Army's Institute of Surgical Research
•Patented U.S. Pat. No. 9,168,044
The inner core of the strap does have some latex. The core however, is made of a vulcanized rubber with a high silicone content. Chance of latex reaction is considered the same as if exposed to an automobile tire. Core is completely wrapped in a protective polyester sheath, which acts to shield the inner core from direct contact with the skin.
The R.A.T.S. Tourniquet should be kept in the plastic packaging until use. The device should be properly disposed of after use. Inspection of the device should take place before use. Inspection should consist of looking for any fraying of the sheath, cracks in the metal cleat, or any other deformities of the device that could compromise the tourniquet. If any of these conditions exist, do not use and promptly replace the tourniquet.
The R.A.T.S. Tourniquet is guaranteed to be free of defects or we'll replace it for free!
When properly applied, the R.A.T.S. Tourniquet is a safe
and effective device for controlling life-threatening hemmoraghing . Consult an EMS professional for proper training on any and all tourniquet use. Do not apply over solid objects. Read all directions and understand proper use before any attempt to render aid. If used due to trauma, go to the nearest hospital immediately.

ratsmedical.com delivers quickly with zero problems. These tourniquets are small enough to be taken with you everywhere, and they work well. There seems to be a whole lot of tourniquet snobs online, that seem to know a whole lot of theory. I can tell you this, that after 20 years working in a level one trauma center, where patients are helo'd in from three other states, that I can't say I've seen enough tourniquet usage to make me an expert, so I wonder how there are so many online? For the last five years of my career, I took blood pressure readings on patients who were being stressed on an inclined treadmill, and I had no problem stopping the blood flow in their upper arm, even when their blood pressure was massively elevated, using just a BP cuff, so I don't understand why people think that blood flow can't be stopped without five hands and a crank? Online experts.
I couldn't be more pleased. Quality product that delivers as promised. They make great gifts.
