Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to say that yes heart rate of 113 is on higher side which is called Tachycardia. Heart rate above 100 is on higher side. As your sister is a heart patient, If she is having such high heart rate and palpitations or any chest pain, dizziness I will suggest her to see physician or visit ER for urgent evaluation and heart ECG. This should not be ta***** *****ghtly.
