ECG Death

Brugada syndrome was described by brothers Peter and Josep Brugada in 1991-1992, based on the function of its changing to character and can therefore be difficult you diagnose. It is characterized by ST segment elevation, which corresponds you the period of repolarization in right precordial leads accompanied by conduction disturbance in right branch. You emphasize on the aspects, diagnosis, treatment and outcome of patient with Brugada syndrome. Methodos: This is descriptive, exploratory study.

We describe the first teams in the theoretical issue, then followed it marries report experienced by academics. Results: Using dates reported in the literature, it is perceived by diagnosis the ECG signals which indicate the of Brugada syndrome, and treatment will be patients is the implantation of to cardioverter defibrillator. Conclusion: The Brugada syndrome is considered severe disease with fatal consequences, but identifying symptoms early, there may be an increase in survival of individuals sussetiveis you trigger this syndrome. Patients with characteristic findings, should seek medical help and makes to clear is identified, immediately implement the Code. Descriptors: syndrome, Brugada ECG, CDI, genetics. Introduction Syndrome of Brugada is the most common cause of sudden death in individuals without structural cardiac alterations. This syndrome is a hereditary arrhythmia that makes with the ventricles beats so quickly that they can hinder that the blood circulates efficiently in corpo1.

When this situation occurs the individual faints and can die in some minutes if the rhythm of the heart will not be reestablished. This illness has greater incidence in adult individuals of the masculine sex, therefore recent studies had suggested that the testosterone can have an important paper in this sndrome2. It presents to the carriers of this syndrome a structurally normal heart, but, however, with frequent sincopais episodes and/or sudden death, being that the death cases appear for return of the 40 years, but they have been diagnosised in all idades3.
