Hi Bip,

I think what you are asking me is do you have Brugada syndrome or just a right bundle branch block.  I have included two links that show the EKGs of Brugada syndrome and a simple right bundle branch block.  The ST elevation is the elevation above basesline of the segment from S to T wave.  To be honest you have to look at a lot of EKGs before this makes sense.

Things that would make you worry about this being more than a right bundle branch block are a history of syncope or near syncope, a family history of premature sudden death (young age 20’s to 60’s).

• Patients with syncope and an abnormal Type 1 ECG are at higher risk
• Asymptomatic patients at risk can be identified
o Presence of spontaneous Type 1 ST-segment elevation
o Characteristics of the S wave
o Presence of late potentials
o Inducibility of VT/VF using PES.

I hope this answers your questions and doesn’t confuse you or make you more worried.  The incidence of Brugada syndrome is pretty low.

Hi bip,

Go for a treadmill stress test.  The dr can diagnose there when you've a rest.  He gave me a stack of report (27 pages).  Take care.

if the right bundle was intermittent and related to Brugada, it would have come out on the EKG.  If the right bundle was there during the test, that makes interpretation more difficult.
