Thanks for writing in to healthcare magic Physician's desk!
If a hole in the heart(PDA, MR,TR,VSD,Fallot's tetralogy all called as hole in the heart in layman terms) is large enough it would result in hypotension-low BP and mostly associated tachycardia-fast heart rate.

I wish the baby a great health.
