Whenever patients have a significant amount of palpitations that cause symptoms, a 30 day event monitor or holter monitor can usually be done to determine if there is an arrhythmia that is causing the palpitations.  Further treatment can then be determined there.  Alcohol has been associated with arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation.
