Answer

Following alcohol-related arrhythmia, it is usually advisable for patients to refrain from significant exertion, because excessive catecholamines can precipitate recurrent episodes in some cases. Most patients without underlying heart disease should be able to gradually resume full physical activity over the next few days.
