Thank you for using Healthcare Magic.
A rise in heart rate would be quite normal in hot weather. Also, Ventolin can cause a rise in heart rate which may last up to an hour after the dose. If you are following a liquid diet then there is the possibility that you may have a been slightly dehydrated. Therefore, I can reassure you that these changes in your heart rate are a normal reaction to your circumstances and you need not worry.
I hope this has helped. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
