Description
Brugada syndrome is characterized by an electrocardiograph pattern of right
bundle-branch block and has an increased risk for cardiac arrest due to malignant arrhythmia.
We describe the successful anesthetic management for electroconvulsive therapy
in a patient with Brugada electrocardiograph pattern. Patients with Brugada ECG
pattern are not recommended to use neostigmine which augments ST elevation. Sugammadex
was administered as a neuromuscular reversal agent in this case. Sugammadex
provides rapid reversal of profound rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade under
propofol anesthesia.
