Respiratory Rate

The rate at which a person inhales and exhales when at rest is called the respiratory rate. It is one of the vital signs of human beings. Normally, it is approximately 12 to 20 inspirations per minute.

Normal respiratory rate for an 8 month old?

We had to take our 8 month old to the ER the other day for shortness of breath and the hospital told us 28-30 breaths a minute is normal.

What is the normal pulse rate for an adult?

The normal pulse rate for an adult is 60 to 100 beats per minute. In general, people that are physically fit have lower resting pulse rates, while people that are less physically fit tend to have a bit higher resting pulse rates.

How many breaths per minute does a human take?


If a person had 70-90 breathes in one minute, they wouldn't be human anymore. The average adult breathes in and out every 4-5 seconds or so. If you are an adult and your respiration are between 12 and 25, then you need not worry. Outside of that (when your body is at rest), then you should be worried.

The normal range of breaths per minute for an adult (relaxed) is between 9 and 14, one breath meaning one movement of the chest, up and down. This will obviously increase upon exercise. If your respiration rate is above, this could indicate that you are not getting enough oxygen into your lungs and around your system. People who suffer from asthma or breathing, heart or respiratory problems tend to have higher respiration rates. Some medications especially pain medications can lower your respiration rate also .


Normal breathing rates fall between 12-20 per minute. Either above or below this range will result in inadequate profusion.

What is the reason why the respiratory rate change after running?

Your body needs more oxygen as you run along with an increased heart rate. Your muscles use more oxygen because they are being used more. Your breathing rate and heart rate decrease as you slow down or stop.

Why does an increased breathing rate accompany exercise?

You begin to breath faster when exercising because your muscles are using more oxygen than when you are resting and so you breathing increases in order to supply your muscles with enough oxygen.
The more you exersice the more useage of oxygen in the blood. So the blood has to travel faster in order to keep up with the high oxygen demands. Therefore the heart pumps faster, to allow for faster diffusion rates of O2, during exercise.
this is because the more excersize you do, the more oxygen is needed in the mitochondria of your muscles to convert glucose into energy. therefore the more you breathe, the higher intake of oxygen is obtained, thus providing reactants for aerobic respiration to continue before anaerobic respiration takes over.
because our muscles need more oxygen in order to carry out respiration and burn energy. When you breathe, you inhale oxygen into the air sacks in your lungs called alveoli. Then it is transferred to your bloodstream on red blood cells by a pigment called hemoglobin The oxygen goes into your blood by a gas exchange called diffusion. This is when oxygen goes into your blood and carbon dioxide comes out because too much is harmful to your body. These will then carry it to your cells in the muscle where energy is burned and respiration occurs. Therefore, you will need to take more breaths to keep getting more oxygen into your body.
When exercising, most of the muscles in our body speed up their metabolism. As they run out of energy, the body needs to produce more energy. More oxygen is required to produce the energy needed to keep exercising and other processes.

In a way, the increased need for energy causes our body to "starve" for oxygen. The instinctive response we have to compensate for this sudden need of oxygen is breathing faster.

When you exercise you have an increase in the depth of breathing. Your muscles need more oxygen during exercise because they need to produce more energy to work for long periods of time and they do this by breaking down glucose in your food but they need oxygen to do this. Without an increase in oxygen the muscles will try to produce energy through the anaerobic energy system to make ATP but this creates lactic acid. Before you begin exercising you get a small rise in breathing rate and this is called anticipatory rise. When you begin exercising there is a noticeable increase in breathing rate and after a few minutes of aerobic exercise your breathing continuous to increase but eventually levels off if the intensity remains constant. If you are exercising at your highest possible intensity then your breathing rate will keep increasing until exhaustion. After exercise the breathing rate returns to normal rapidly to begin with and then more slowly.
an increase in breathing rate is brought about as exsersize because when you exersize your heart beats faster and it means that your blood stream needs more oxygen which means you have to breath more a second.
Well, when you exercise you use more oxygen, there fore you need to get more oxygen into your body and you breathe fast and that raises your breathing rate. When you finish exercising you need to get more oxygen into your body, before it goes back to normal. It slowly gets back to normal after you finish exercising.
Breathing is all to do with getting more Oxygen into the body and out. During exercise, the muscles need more energy, and so the blood needs to move faster around the body, causing the lungs to work harder and causes the heart to beat faster, to get more blood around quicker. To get more energy, more air must enter the lungs, and so faster breathing. Hope this helps :D

The Difference Between

What is the ratio for normal breathing?

For a normal healthy person a 1:2 or 1:1.5 Inspiratory to Expiratory ratio is expected. Person's with obstructive pulmonary disease processes (COPD, active Asthma reaction) may have a prolonged exhalation 1:3, 1:4 etc. Pulmonary Fibrosis (stiff lung) and damage to certain nueral receptors can cause prolonged inspiration. I/E ratios are manipulated with intubated ventilated patients to achieve a variety of outcomes.

What is a normal respiration rate of a cat?

According to Dr Tammy Shearer in "Emergency First Aid for Your Cat", normal respiratory rate is 24 to 28 breaths per minute. NOrmal temperature is 100.5 to 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit, and normal pulse/heart rate is 110 to 140 beats per minute.

What is the difference between apical pulse and radial pulse?

The apical pulse is taken when the patient is lying or sitting. A stethoscope is used to listen to the heart and placed at the 5th intercostal space (between ribs on left side of body). The beats are counted for a full minute and recorded.

A radial pulse is taken by feeling (palpating) for the pulse on either wrist, just below the thumb (in the soft spot). The beats are counted for 30 seconds, then doubled. If the beats are irregular, they are counted for 60 seconds.

The pulse is recorded as beats per minute: BPM

An apical-radial pulse is when two nurses record each at the same time. The difference is called the "pulse deficit."

What is the normal respiration rate in infants?

A newborn's normal breathing rate is about 40 breaths per minute, and slows to as low as 20 when the baby is sleeping. Rapid breathing is more than 60 breaths per minute. Continuous rapid breathing is a sign of problem. a baby who is having problems taking in enough air will have nostrils that widen with each inhaled breath

What is normal blood pressure for 56 year old female?

Normal adult blood pressure is 120/80. Anything over 140/90 is considered hypertension (high blood pressure). A top number (systolic blood pressure) less than 90 is usually considered hypotension (low blood pressure) except under certain circumstances.

How do you obtain a respiratory rate?

This one is simple, just watch the patients chest for breathing movements for one min. (or 30sec x 2, or 15sec x 4 ect...) The result should be amount of breaths per minute. A normal individual will breath at rest about 12-16 per minute.

Important additional information:Newborns rates can be much higher at an average rate of 44 breaths per minute. Also a tip, don't let the person know you are trying to count their respirations, they will be aware of it and often breathe slower. helpful hints:It is better to get the respiratory rate for one whole minute rather multiplying it either by 30sec x 2 or 15sec x 4 because you might not get an accurate respiratory rate. you can also proceed to get the respiratory rate once you're finished getting the pulse rate and pretend you are still getting the pulse rate so that the patient cannot manipulate his/her breathing pattern.
