Pediatrician, Pulmonology 's  Response
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.
