What is the normal average Breath Rate?

The average respiration rate for an adult at rest is 12 to 20 breaths per minute. Below or over this rate per minute, it is considered irregular.

Respiration rates can be affected by age, medical condition, illness, physical condition, and emotional state.

We suggest consulting your doctor for any doubt concerning your health.
