Varies: About a hundred beats per minute. But it depends on the child´s activity. Also when kids get fever their heart rate elevates by about 10 beats with each degree of fever.

Slow: That's a little slow. If it just dipped there, I wouldn't think twice about it, but if it's staying there, it bears investigation. How are you feeling?

60-100: Normal resting heart rates are designated as being 60-100. Deviations from this can occur under various physiologic states however and might not indicate any cardiac abnormality (example increased vagal tone as seen in episodes of nausea might slow hr below 60). Anxiety, dehydration, anemia, fever, and pain might make a resting heart rate >100. Thyroid issues (hypo w slow hr, hyper w fast hr).
