Is there an alternative sleep apnea test other than an overnight sleep study?

In brief: No

Questionaires are not very sensitive.
The only sure way to know is an overnight psg (sleep stuyd). This can be done in the lab or at home. More and more insurance companies are moving towards in-home sleep studies in suspected apnea patients without significant illnesses like heart failure.

In brief: Take home test

A lot of dentist and sleep labs do a level 3 testing which you take home.
