CHILD UNDER 12 HEART RATE

  WHAT IS THE NORMAL HEART RATE OF A CHILD UNDER 12 YEARS OF AGE?
Dear TJ :
AGE           LOWER LIMIT       AVERAGE           UPPER LIMIT
  
NEWBORN          70/MIN          125                190
1-11 MO          80              120                160
4 YR             80              100                120
8 YR             70              90                 110
10 YR            70              90                 110
Heart rate varies with infant or child's activity . They may increase to 180+ if the infant is crying . As the child grows , heart rate tends to slow down . Its a known fact that athletic children have low heart rates ( sometimes as low as 40/Min )
