My 13yr old daughter had the flu 5 days ago that turned into dehyradation that took us to the ER for rapid heart rate (150 bpm) - EKG was fine except for the rapid rate - low potasium level - gave her IV and potasium supplement and sent her home - but her heart rate is still 100-120 at home and she is having a hard time sleeping ( I think shes worried) - took to her doctor and was advised to keep her drinking and eating but she is getting weaker. This happened 2 months ago and she was fine after 2 days but this is going on day 6. Doctor had me make appt with ped. cardiologist but can't get in until next week. Any advise?View Thread
