To apply a cat tourniquet, follow these steps.
First, locate the bleeding site on the injured limb. Place the tourniquet approximately two to three inches above the bleeding area.
Next, wrap the tourniquet around the limb, making sure it is flat and not twisted. Pull the strap tight and secure it through the buckle, leaving about an inch of slack.
Twist the windlass until the bleeding stops. Lock the windlass in place with the windlass clip.
Finally, document the time the tourniquet was applied and seek medical assistance as soon as possible. Remember, proper training and medical guidance are crucial when applying a tourniquet.
