Patients with Brugada syndrome usually appear usually normal. Physical examination of patients with Brugada syndrome is usually remarkable by vagal maneuvers such as carotid sinus massage may increase vagal tone and may unmask the presence of a Type I Brugada pattern.

The presence of recent symptoms such as syncope, it is important to check the temperature in so far as fever may trigger a self terminating or sustained episode of ventricular tachycardia / ventricular fibrillation. The presence of fever is also a target of antipyretic therapy on physical examination is highly suggestive of Brugada syndrome.
