High Pulse

What does a high pulse notification mean?

A high pulse notification can take place for several reasons, and in some occasions it may be harmless. Maybe the child is only nervous or agitated, or it may mean the onset of an infection, if it is accompanied by an increase in temperature.

What should you do at home?

When should an emergency service be consulted?

If the high pulse notification persists after all the action protocols mentioned above have been carried out, or if it repeats during several days, we recommend you to attend to an emergency pediatrics service.
