My son in law is only 20 years old. He was taken to er with heart rate of 297. Could you please explain?

How bad is this?
Is this rate very serious?

This means that your son in law was having high blood pressure or a related heart problem. This was the cause of his heart rate being so high. You can however get more information from a doctor.

Well there is not enough info to give you any kind of answer.
1)Is he over weight
2) does he have a history of hypertension
3) does he drink a lot of energy drinks
4) does he have a lot of stress right now
5) is he on any meds or changed any meds recently
6) does he have a strenuous job or activities
7) does he have an irregular heart or heart beat
I could go on and on, you need to find out from the doctor even with a few of these being answered with my medical background can not answer this.
As for how bad this is, it isn't good but without more info I can not be certain on the circumstances
