  • My son is 13 months and is on an apnea monitor. His HR setting is set at 65 any lower than the monitor alarms. It is normal for kids of that age to have a lower heart rate than when a newborn. Also her HR might have been faster because she is sick. With fevers the body works hard to try to rid of all the germs invading the body. So like any workout the HR goes faster. SO if the docs weren;t concerned than I am sure your lil one is ok. I hope she feels better soon!

  • mm that seems a little on the high end...192...but the resting sounds about normal. If you have any concerns you should call the dr. in charge of the monitors

  • Approx. 90-150 beats per minute. If they are crying it can go up.

  • For adults it's approx 60-100 beats per minute. Normal is different for everyone.
