Dear Ms Malathi,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The ECG is nearly normal except for the fast heart rate.
Rate above 100 is called tachycardia
It has several causes - from simple fever and anxiety to thyroid and heart disease.
Your mother needs to seen by a doctor / especially because of breathlessness and pain - for favour of further assessment and assistance.
Take her as soon as possible.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
