Pediatric sleep providers frequently encounter issues related to sleep technology in clinical settings. In this review article, we discuss technical issues related to standard polysomnography, research on putative complementary novel metrics derived from polysomnographic signals as well as research on home sleep apnea testing in children and consumer sleep devices. Although developments across several of these domains are exciting, it remains a rapidly evolving area. When evaluating innovative devices and home sleep testing approaches, clinicians should be mindful of accurately interpreting diagnostic agreement statistics to apply these technologies appropriately.
