Description Our simulations suggest that ethanol has concentration-­dependent electrophysiological effects that differ between atria and ventricles, and in the absence or presence of AF-­related remodeling. Low concentrations of ethanol could have anti-­AF effects whereas moderate-­ and high-­concentrations may promote AF. These findings facilitate a better understanding of the complex effects of alcohol consumption on cardiac electrophysiology.
