Brugada Syndrome

You always hear about it when working up syncope and sudden cardiac arrest in young patients, but it’s so easy to forget what it looks like on ECG. We so rarely see it… or DO we?!

This Paucis Verbis card on Brugada Syndrome is to help emblazon these ECG tracings in our mind, so that we don’t miss the subtle findings which place a patient at risk for sudden cardiac death. Pay special attention to Type 1, which is most specific for Brugada Syndrome.

PV Card: Brugada Syndrome

* Update 8/2/18: Only Type 1 and Type 2 are recognized for Brugada syndrome. The type 3 pattern is likely a normal variant.
