depends on age

  • birth to 6 weeks: 30-60 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: 15-20 breaths per minute
  • adults: 12-20 breaths per minute
  • so about 1 beat every 3 seconds if you are an adult
