Overview

What is Brugada syndrome?

Brugada syndrome is a cardiac condition disorder. This means that it affects how the electrical pulse move through the heart. It typically occurs in an affected person's 40s; however, the youngest reported age was two days of life and the oldest reported age was 85. Brugada syndrome should be suspected in any person who has a personal history of unexplained passing out (syncope) and/or heart attack, a specific abnormal heart beat pattern on an EKG, and/or a family history of sudden cardiac death (SCD).
