Answer

In patients with suspected Brugada syndrome, consider the following studies:

  • 12-lead ECG in all patients with syncope

  • Drug challenge with a sodium channel blocker in patients with syncope without an obvious cause

  • Electrophysiologic study to determine the inducibility of arrhythmias for risk stratification
