Can a person have alcohol with bundle branch block on heart ?

A person is diagnosed with severe sleep apnea also shows bundle branch block on heart tests, and loses conciousness occasionally. He, however, fails to tell doctors he consumes 10 beers every day. What significance does alcohol really play in these symptoms?

Thanks for the query

Most of the bundle branch block, most often right BBB than LBBB are incidental findings and have little role in any findings.
If he is losing his consciousness after 10 beers then probably it is due to alcohol than RBBBB, if its not after alcohol then he needs to get a CV doppler and ECHO
