Have irregularities on EKG chart. Need clearance from cardiologist to do sleep study

I want to do a sleep study but was told by a screening physician that I would need clearance from a cardiologist because there was two irregularities on my EKG chart. This doctor thinks it is probably not serious, but the study has strict guidelines and needs assurances I am fine. I am 29, very atheletic, pulse rate of 47, good blood pressure , etc. I don t have insurance and need to get cleared by October 5th. Is it possible for me to get this clearance without paying and arm and a leg? Thanks.

Hello ..
thanks for writing us..

You have not mentioned why you are undergoing sleep study??
Any obstructive sleep apnea or other sleep disorder??

For cardiological clearance minimum requirement will be ECG and ECHO that are not costly,

Better you write complete history and what type of irregulaty was found in your ECG.

I will be more comfortable to answer you after that

Best wishes
