Abnormal EKG in rural setting

While this was not my personal patient, it came from a very good friend. This was at a facility I used to work at and I thought it made a great case for discussion.

Brugada syndromeHistory and presentation:

The discussion quickly turned to Brugada Syndrome…thoughts?
