Anyone know what you'd consider a fast resting heart rate for a 21-month-old? I'm a little concerned because Coral's is running at about 140 at rest (but not sleeping). That seems fast to me. She's due for another checkup at the cardiologist for her ASD soon but if that heart rate is elevated I might want to take her in sooner. I know it doesn't necessarily mean anything but it still worries me! I recall when she was back in the NICU she'd run at about 126 bpm. Thanks ladies

Jack is much younger and smaller (4 months, 12 lbs), so I don't know if that makes a difference. But in the hospital last week his heart rate was 180!ish resting (with a fever) and 120ish (without fever). I didn't realize that a fever raised the heart rate. Coral doesn't have a fever does she?

Fever can raise the heart rate.
I would call the cardiologist just to see what they say.

A child between the ages of 1–3 years typically has a resting heart rate of 70 to 110 beats per minute, so 140 is rather fast.

Thank you, that's what I thought. We are actually between cardiologists because my husband's company was recently bought out and we got new insurance providers, and Coral's original cardiologist doesn't take our insurance (which is weird because it's a really good plan and common provider). Anyway I looked and found one our insurance does use and I'm waiting to call on Monday. She needs an echo anyway to see what her ASD is up to. It makes me nervous just thinking about it.

We have an appointment in 2 weeks, on the 16th. I sure hope they'll do the echo then while we're there but since we're new patients I'm fearing we'll have to be seen and then schedule the echo. I don't even know if they do it in-office like our old cardiologist did.

Hopefully because you are new patients they will want to an echo right away. The sooner they do the echo the better for their records.

Jude has WPW which causes Tacycardia. Our Cardioloist has said over 200 bpm for over an half hour is enough to bring him into the ER.
