What causes breathing difficulty with palpitations and high fever?
Three-year-old daughter with breathing problems are fast heart rate. As well as fevers of 104.3 Fahrenheit RSV has been discarded as well as pneumonia the doctors do not know what she s got. She also complains of stomach pain burps a lot.It is very cool outside temperatures have got down to -45°F.
Hi...higher heart rates are quite common in high grade fever like this. But it depends on how much is the rate. For a 3 year old if the heart rate is above 180/min, then we should consider a condition called SVT (Supraventricular Tachycardia). If I were your paediatrician I would have taken an ECG and then decide on it. Regards - Dr. Sumanth
