It can: Long qt is one of the most common causes of "sudden death" especially in the young. Caution is needed though; just because an ekg says "long qt" doesn't mean you have the dangerous (and genetic) "long qt syndrome." a competent electrophysiologist and potentially genetic testing are needed here.
