Release dopamine and serotonin
Dopamine levels increase after completing a crossword puzzle. Regularly doing crossword puzzles can reduce anxiety, says a New York Times article. Sitting down and thinking of something else (the crossword clues) is the perfect distraction for your body and mind.
preservE memory and cognitive function
Researchers reviewed previously published studies in 2013 and discovered that mental exercises, such as crossword puzzles, are among the most efficient methods for preserving memory and cognitive function. In fact, these methods outperformed some medications.
Enhance problem-solving skills
In a study conducted by the University of Exeter Medical School and Kings College London, “the more often participants engaged with word puzzles, the better they performed on tasks assessing memory, reasoning, and attention.”
You’ll find in this book American-style crosswords about medical terms, EMS vocabulary, medical conditions, and emergency situations. The levels range from easy and fun to challenging yet educational.
Not to worry; you won’t find words like
(which, if you’re wondering, is a lung disease caused by the inhalation of silica or quartz dust.) I designed the puzzles to be entertaining and educational for everyone – doctors, nurses, paramedics, EMTs, and even Danny. Who’s Danny, you ask? Danny is the local barber who took a CPR class after a client fainted from a bad haircut.
Creating medical puzzles is my second passion, right behind saving lives. What puzzles and subjects should I make next? I would love to hear from you. Please send your feedback to my email: [email protected]
