Diagnosis

Electrocardiogram

ECG/EKG WavesBrugada syndrome is diagnosed with an electrocardiogram (ECG). This is a painless, noninvasive test in which patches with electrodes are attached to your skin to measure electrical impulses produced by your heart.

These impulses are recorded as waves displayed on a monitor or printed out on graph paper.

  • It shows how fast your heart is beating and its rhythm (steady or irregular).
  • It also records the timing of the electrical signals as they pass through each part of the heart.

Medical History

A thorough history of both your medical history, as well as your family's, are also important in the diagnosis of this condition.
