In brief: Almost certainly
The high heart rate of kawasaki disase (kd) is usually only present during the febrile phase.
Those who are treated with ivig only very rarely have long-term cardiac problems. However, chidlren who are not treated with immunoglobulin (ivig) have a 25% chance of developing aneurysms of the coronary arteries (and other arteries) that can injure the heart and may also cause a high heart rate.

In brief: Yes
Children with kawasaki recover well.
Her heart rate should return to normal. If she has any evidence of coronary artery injury she will be followed closely by a cardiologist. The intravenous gamma globulin works very well to reduce symptoms and encourage recovery.

In brief: Probably
The heart issues with kawaskai's usually don't affect conduction but rather blood flow to the muscle itself.
Once the fever is gone things should be better. Watch http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=lxtuw8pmpyk and http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=smw9yipnacg to learn more.
