In brief: Sinus Arrhythmia

Sinus Arrhythmia is a normal variant that gives a name to the change in heart rate during the inspiratory and expiratory phase of respiration.
It is harmless. However, pediatric EKGs can be difficult to interpret. I would make sure a Pediatric Cardiologist takes a look at it.
