### How many breaths do you take daily?

Let's see: I take about 12 breaths a minute. There are 60 minutes in an hour. That means I take 720 breaths an hour. That means I take about 11,520 breaths during the 16 hours when I am awake. When I fall asleep my breathing slows down. At 10 breaths a minute that is 600 breaths an hour. that will be 4,800 breaths when I am asleep. 11,520+4,800= Whoops my adding machine just disappeared from the screen.

### How many breaths does a person average each day?

12-16 beats per minute is average so... 720-960 beats per hour 17,280-23,040 per day A normal respiratory rate is somewhere around 8-14 breaths per minute. Given 1,440 minutes in a day, and assuming a normal respiratory rate of say 12 breaths per minute, and that respiratory rate doesn't vary much throughout the day, you'd have 12 * 1,440 = 17,280 breaths in a day. Of course these assumptions break down when considering a real person doing real things (eg, what would happen in exercise?), the number at least gets you in the ballpark. 17,280-23,040 per day The average person takes about 15 breaths a minute. So, 15 x 60 (minutes in an hour)= 900 x 24 (hours in a day) = 21,600. Depending on the circumstances, the average person in- and exhales 12 times per minute 0.5 litres of air. 12 times 0.5 makes 6 litres of air per minute. Thus 60 times (1 hour) 24 times (1 day) 6 litres results in 8640 litres of air in 1 day. This is done in 17280 breaths per day.

### What is considered normal adult respiration per minute?

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 nomal respirations per minute for adult child infant?

The rate will vary according to age. The youngest will have a faster rate. The number of breaths we take per minute is a sign of how often our brain is telling our bodies to breathe. If the oxygen level in the blood is low, or alternately if the carbon dioxide level in the blood is high, our body is instructed to breathe more often. For example, having a severe infection increases the carbon dioxide produced in the body, so even if there's a normal level of oxygen in the blood, the brain instructs the body to breathe more often to clear the carbon dioxide. Children have faster respiratory rates than adults, and the "normal" respiratory rate can vary significantly by age. The normal ranges of respiratory rates for children (at rest) of different ages include: Newborn: 30-60 breaths per minute Infant (1 to 12 months): 30-60 breaths per minute Toddler (1-2 years): 24-40 breaths per minute Preschooler (3-5 years): 22-34 breaths per minute School-age child (6-12 years): 18-30 breaths per minute Adolescent (13-17 years): 12-16 breaths per minute
