A Rare Case of Brugada Syndrome of a Female Patient Presented for Labour: Structured Anesthetic and Analgesic Plan for Delivery Management


Abstarct: 32 Years old Primigravida, with Brugada syndrome presented for analgesic and anesthetic management for normal vaginal delivery which progressed to emergency caesarean section. We are presenting a structured approach aiming for avoiding medication that can trigger malignant arrhythmia; Possibly achieving minimal local anesthetic serum concentration which could trigger such attacks.
Key Words: Brugada syndrome; Combined spinal epidural; Local anaesthesia.
