Ok: HR at 2 yo of 54 is low side of normal, assuming no cardiac history, ie abnormal rhythm, birth cardiac inherited or acquired condition. Observe for now, and if HR drops to 50 regularly, see your pediatrician and refer to cardiology. If you need more advice, you can make a virtual appt online for me, welcome Dr. Ivy Fisher
