While my son is laying down, I have been noticing I can cearly see every beat of his heart in his neck. Is this normal? It is a very strong and fast beat.

Hi,

This is very common. You are most likely seeing the pulse at the carotid artery.

This is one of the points where we can check a pulse.

How is his blood pressure at his checkups? If it has been fine, I do not think it is cause to worry. Hypertension is not very common in children.

Hope that helps.

Younger children to have a faster beats. It is a point in the neck where you can check the pulse but I'm curious--how noticeable is it that his heart beat is actually beating? Is it something you have to look closely on or does it beat very heavily? You may want to ask his doctor about it the next time you're there.
