Maine Sleep Institute
For Patients:

Inside the Maine Sleep Institute

The Maine Sleep Institute is a state-of-the-art facility. It is comfortably decorated with full-size sleep number beds, cable TV, evening snacks and handicapped-accessible showers. 



Behind the scenes of the homey environment is a well-trained staff of Board Certified sleep physicians, registered respiratory therapist, and registered polysomnographic technologist, who utilize the industry's most sophisticated equipment. 

Patients of our sleep center usually arrive between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. and leave the following morning around 7. A minimum of 6 hours of recording time is required. 

A visit to the Maine Sleep Institute for a sleep study or polysomnogram will include recording of measurements used to identify different sleep stages and classify various sleep problems.

It's a simple and painless procedure that will measure brainwaves, heart beats, leg and eye movements, muscle tension, airflow, chest and abdominal breathing, and blood oxygen levels. Audio and digital monitoring is also used to determine movement, position changes and snoring.
