    Can this be successfully deployed with only one hand, like a CAT?

    EMS response moved away from the thin tourniquets long ago. They can cause significant tissue damage often requiring more amputation later. Material should be at least 1-1/2" wide. In an emergency could it save a life, sure but at what cost.
