If my baby's heart rate changes significantly does labor have to be induced?

Maby. If babys heart rate drops called a decelleration it can mean the babys in distress and usually prompts delivering the baby. Often by c section.
Sometimes. Babies heart rates change all the time. Some changes are good, heart rate rises that are called accelerations. Other changes can be bad like temporary drops (decelerations), low or high heart rates. If there are drops in the heart rate or it is staying too high or too low, you might need to be induced or even have a c/s. A normal fetal heart rate is how we can tell the baby is ok.

Heart rate at age 28. Your maximal predicated HR based on your age is 192 +/-10. If you're otherwise healthy, you can exercise to this number safely but you will get tired quickly as you approach it and will need to stop. 80% of your MPHR is 154. You should be able to exercise at this level for long periods of time. A HR of 100 is harmless - you could tolerate that forever.

Infection. The obstetrician will react accordingly. This could signal an intrauterine infection. The pediatrician will also evaluate once baby is born.
Chorio, epidural. Chorioamnionitis (intrauterine infection) or central hyperthermia from epidural anesthesia are the two likely culprits.

Have you ever heard of these symptoms during labor: vomiting, dizziness, increased heart rate, fast paced breathing?

Yea. Typically, we call it being in active labor. If you are a man, think about this: the equivalent for you would be passing a bowling ball out of your anus. Just the thought makes me nauseous. But there's other potential causes for those symptoms, dangerous ones for both mom and baby.
