Talk to cardiology: I am assuming that you have symptomatic bradycardia, and that was the reason you had a Holter study done. Now, I don't know how long your HR stayed at 27, but even 40 is too low. This isn't something that can wait, call your doctor and develop an action plan today. If after hours ask to speak to the on call doc for that office.

You need to see a cardiologist and likely would benefit from a permanent pacemaker.
