This a potentially fatal disorder linked with a faulty heart rhythm that comes from the Ventricular Arrhythmias or the heart’s lower chambers. Frequent cases of fainting, dizzy spells and palpitations accompanied by irregular heartbeats are a few of the symptoms of this condition.
HOW IS BRUGADA SYNDROME DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of Brugada syndrome is made by a cardiologist who will get a proper personal and family history of the patients along with a thorough physical evaluation. A family history of a sudden cardiac death is highly significant. Also, a specialized test known as electrocardiogram ( ECG of EKG) is done to identify the abnormal electrical impulses of the heart. Cardiologist may also use drugs like sodium channel blockers to stimulate the characeristic abnormalities on EKG. Molecular genetic DNA test is also used to confirm the diagnosis eventhough only 30-35% of affected patients have an revealable mutated gene. An electrophysiologic test will also be used to identify the risk of any sudden cardiac arrest.
HOW IS BRUGADA SYNDROME TREATED?
The only effective and successful treatment for Brugada syndrome is having an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) fitted. An ICD is similar to a pacemaker. Medicines are prescribed to help prevent heart rhythm disturbances like avoiding high temperatures (fever) with paracetamol and treating illnesses such as diarrhoea, which can affect the balance of salts in the body.
DID YOU KNOW?
In normal people there are four chambers in the heart where upper two are known as artria and lower two are known as ventricles. The electrical impulses from atria to veintricles make the heart beat. But in Burguda syndome, the electrical impulses between ventricles are highly uncoordinated resulting in ventricular fibrillation, there by leading to reduction of the blood supply to organs. This reduction in heart and brain can easily give rise to a sudden death.
