IPR Center PSA - Counterfeit Tourniquets

Law enforcement has identified a trend regarding the sale of counterfeited Combat Application Tourniquet medical devices. A counterfeit tourniquet is one that bears the trademark of CAT Resources, but is produced by another party and is usually not made to the specifications of the original equipment manufacturer. These counterfeits are produced illegally and the proceeds could potentially support other criminal activities. Several public safety agencies have reported failure of the counterfeit tourniquet devices in emergency situations.
