I'm assuming that your daughter is an infant. Is that correct? This condition in a child can be benign and a product of the circulation in a small child. So it is entirely probable that the doctor's guidance was correct. However, don't hesitate to seek a second opinion. You could ask the pediatrician for a consult with a pediatric cardiologist, for example. And absolutely have the pediatrician examine her, assuming that the ER physician was not her usual doctor.
