Brugada Syndrome - the Silent Night Killer

In 1992, two brothers, namely Joseph and Pedro Brugada discovered this disease. It was causing sudden death by ventricular fibrillation. This disease was more prevalent in people of Asian origin than the American and European population, of which type 2 and 3 ECG patterns are most common. The average age of patients that die from this disease are around 35 to 40 years. This disease is a conduction disorder, characterized by incomplete right bundle branch block, and a coved-type ST elevation of more than 2 mm in leads V1 to V3. In the Philippines, it is known as "to rise and moan sleep."
