Biography

With decades of experience in critical care medicine and pulmonology, Dr. Sivakumar brings several clinical interests to Rutland Regional’s Intensive Care Unit. He has longstanding special interests in treating sepsis and acute respiratory failure as well as relatively new interest in using handheld ultrasound as a bedside diagnostic tool. Handheld ultrasound is extremely useful in making a timely diagnosis, and it’s becoming more common for practitioners to use. Dr. Sivakumar also focuses on ensuring that patients and their family members are included in making decisions about care.

I focus on involving patients and families in making informed choices about care. I believe this is crucial, especially in an intensive care unit where patients are very ill and must consider their options carefully.

Dr. Sivakumar lives in New Hampshire and enjoys hiking, road bicycling, yoga, tennis and listening to music.
