A normal resting heart rate for a 2-year-old child is between 80 and 130 beats per minute, according to the A.D.A.M. Medical Encyclopedia. The University of British Columbia lists normal heart rate for the same age as being between 89 and 151 beats, with 119 being the average.
A high resting heart rate can be associated with pain, dehydration, or a fever. If the high heart rate is attributed to these factors, then reversal of them should bring the heart rate back to the normal range. For example, if a child is sick with a high fever then he may have a high heart rate.
Normal Values in Children. As you are conducting the Primary Assessment in PALS, it is critical to know the normal values of heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure for a given age. Decisions of what is normal and what needs to be treated are based on these normal values.

It is a cheat sheet outlining behavior and broad norms for what you can expect as far as a two-year-old’s capabilities and conduct. Reminder: children ages 1-3 tend to go through times of “equilibrium” around whole years (1, 2, and 3) and “disequilibrium” around half-years (1.5, 2.5, and 3.5).
Click for pdf: Tachycardia Background General Presentation. Tachycardia is an abnormally rapid heart rate. In adults, this is usually defined as >100 beats per minute (bpm). In pediatrics, the normal heart rate varies with age (see Table 1). Therefore, in children, the definition of tachycardia is age dependent.
The normal heart rate for a 2 year old girl is between 80 beats per minute up to 130 beats per minute. Children and babies have faster resting heart rates than adults do.
