4 year old son vomiting with rapid heart beat, Should I be concerned about this ?

My 4 year old son has been vomiting. 4 times in the last 4 hours. He is sleeping in between as it is past bed time, but I notice his heart rate is racing when I put my hand on his chest. There is no fever. Should I be concerned about this?

Welcome to Hcm.
Fast heart beat in a case of vomiting could be due to dehydration if ther is no fever.kindly give him plenty of fluids or oral rehydration solution.If it persists visit your pediatrician.try to giv him sips instead of whole glass of fluid at once.If he has decreased urine, or refusal to feed or irritable go to doctor soon.
