The Ramon Brugada Senior Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote research and teaching and provide compassionate care in the area of heart disease, particularly for those diseases that may cause arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. One of those diseases is the Brugada syndrome. The Brugada syndrome is a rare inherited cardiovascular disorder characterized by disturbances affecting the electrical system of the heart. The main symptom is irregular heartbeats and, without treatment, may potentially result in sudden death. In some cases, no symptoms may precede sudden death. Brugada syndrome may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.
