Looking back to 2008—Looking forward to 2028

Clinical Practice Lens – ‘In the first edition of the Journal of Paramedic Practice, Roland Furber promised that the journal would hold relevance to the paramedic profession as a whole, and asked for paramedics to come together to contribute their experiences, opinions and research. We feel the last 10 years of the journal have lived up to this promise, with early clinical practice articles covering pulse oximetry, a feasibility study of pre-hospital arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis and research into ventilation during cardiac arrest. As a profession, we have come a long way in a decade, with specialist paramedics now undertaking thoracostomies, surgical airways and pre-hospital ultrasound, while using drugs to undertake nerve blocks, sedation and paralysis. Furthermore, paramedics are no longer confined to the pre-hospital setting, as their skills become universally recognised in the wider healthcare environment. Most recently, we have seen the roll-out of paramedic prescribing, which will undoubtedly facilitate the progression of paramedics in all domains, and pave the way for further specialist and advanced paramedic roles.’
