Hi dear
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
If it is an EKG which is completely normal otherwise and your kid has no other complaints , it is not a finding need to be worried.But the heart rate depends on the age of your kid.Please mention her age , if she has any breathlessness or palpitations or sudden falls .These details can let me give you a better advice.
Take care.

for past few weeks i am feeling some unpleasant palpiation (feels like something in my chest stops and comback again.. like flip-flop)so i went to see a doctor. they examined my blood pressure and done a ECG test while i was resting for couple of minutes. my blood pressure was absolutely normal and so is the ECG test (during that period i did not sense any papitations as well). However i am still getting those palpitations and i feeling like they are comming quite often now. i used to smoke but i have quit now. can someone please advise how shall i describe this to my Doctor and what test i must undertake in order to be on a safe side... and how dangrous could that papitation be? could something like palpitation happens due to gas or something else as well? please advise... thanks

I have a sinking feeling in my chest and I don t really know how to describe it. It s as if my heart is beating slower than normal. This has happened to me a lot before but it usually ends after 1 hour but this one has lasted the whole day. I am a female 5 feet 4 inches and a teenager

Yes, how are you? I get skipped beats once in a while. Mostly one skipped beat, rarely skipped beats in a row. It usually happens when i am stressed, which means when i am talking to people or on the computer. I usually do not get runs or tachycardia just skipped beats or thumps. This has been going on for 13 years, though they are less than before. They usually feel less impactful and happen less when i exercise.... could this mean i am out of shape... could this be dangerous? I already had holters and EKGs, this did not find. Still worried though.....
