what is the normal heart rate for a 3 year old in seconds?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Carol Jacobs
Specializes in Pediatrics
Varies: 70-110 beats per minute - 1.1 to 1.6 beats per second. The proper way to take a child's pulse is to count for one full minute. If a child takes a deep breath it's normal to feel a slight pause. This is called Sinus Arrythmia. http://www.livestrong.com/article/354072-normal-pulse-in-a-three-year-old/
