I wouldn't worry about this at all. It just means that her heart tips to the right instead of the left. It's really no big deal. On the EKG her Lead One will face downward instead of up so the techs need to be aware of that, otherwise they are going to think the leads were put on backwards. Let your 5 year old play to her heart's content!!
