Everyone's heart rate will increase with fever.  Of course the cause of the fever will be important to decide if the increased heart rate is excessive or not.  She should be evaluated by her pediatrician.

Sometimes when LO's have high temps then their heart rate can go up.If you are concerned then you should call her ped just to make sure.
