In brief: Cardiac abnormality
This is a congenital issue, with a single ventricle there is a high probability of hypoxemia and a sleep study can help to quantify this and its sleep stage dependence.
The treatment of this is multidisciplinary and specialists are absolutely warranted.

In brief: Not related
Typically, infants with any of the various types of single ventricle do not need a sleep study.
However, occasionally, there are benefits of understanding the various contributions to heart and lung physiology during sleep by doing a formal sleep study. A sleep study can be helpful to understand if either central apnea (brain) or obstructive apnea is occurring during sleep.
