Respiratory Rate

The respiratory rate is the rate at which breathing occurs. This is usually measured in breaths per minute.

For humans, the typical respiratory rate for a healthy adult at rest is 12-18 breaths per minute.[9] The respiratory center sets the quiet respiratory rhythm at around two seconds for an inhalation and three seconds exhalation. This gives the lower of the average rate at 12 breaths per minute.

Average resting respiratory rates by age are:

birth to 6 weeks: 30-40 breaths per minute
6 months: 25-40 breaths per minute
3 years: 20-30 breaths per minute
6 years: 18-25 breaths per minute
10 years: 17-23 breaths per minute
Adults: 12-18 breaths per minute
Elderly > 65 years old: 12-28 breaths per minute
Elderly > 80 years old: 10-30 breaths per minute

Counting now, I'm around 10/min in a relaxed state. I tryed an oxymeter like this before and then I had about 97-99 percent oxygen saturation, which is normal.

Relaxed state with 2 second inhale 1 second hold 3 second exhale is like 10 for me.

N is probably too low for conclusions but 4/5 RR < 12.
