Pulmonary Care

Rumford Hospital Offers Pulmonary Care and Services

The specialty of pulmonology, sometimes called respiratory diseases, focuses on the respiratory tract, including the lungs, heart and blood vessels.

Pulmonary conditions include breathing disorders (such as asthma), sleep disorders, severe allergies, various lung conditions and diseases, and diseases of the cardiopulmonary system. Rumford Hospital's visiting pulmonologist evaluates, diagnoses and prescribes treatments that may include medications, therapy and possibly surgery.

Pulmonologists are also trained in intensive care medicine and assist patients who require mechanical ventilation.

A pulmonologist is at Rumford Hospital on the first and third Friday of every month. Appointments are available from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
