An ecg/ekg (same thing) is a "snap-shot" in time. So, if the heart is behaving as a normal heart when the ecg is taken, but there are other times when the heart is doing something else, the ecg will give a false reading from the perspective the overall health of the heart.
An at rest heart rate over 100 is usually considered probematic, needs treatment. It may be simply a "rate-control" problem, which a beta blocker can treat, or it may be a sign of other problems.
