My 7 month old is admitted due to increased heart rate, likely due to consumption of ventolin. How serious is this?

In brief: Depends on situation

Infants easily tolerate heart rates in the 200/min range for a variable length of time.
If intake has stopped, 1/2 should be out of babies system in 4-6 hours with 1/2 the remainder in another 4-6h. Baby should do fine if this was the cause. If there is another issue the outcome depends on that issue.
