Normal Respiratory Rate For Kids
30 years old female, constant respiratory tract infections, heart rate rises and breathless very easily. Help?
Chronic lung disease: Frequent lung infections can cause chronic inflammation and scarring in the lung tissue. This would decrease how effectively the lung can extract oxygen from air you breath and eliminate cardondioxide (co2). In that case your heart needs to work harder and faster especially when u perform physical activity. ...Read more
What type of work?: What type of work? The heart rate depends on many factors including conditioning, activity and stress level, disease state, mediations, etc. The standard answer is 60-100 but lower rates are quite normal for heatlhy conditioned people and resting rates near 100 are not desirable. With heavy exertion rates may be considerably higher. ...Read more
Heart rate of 140 in a 4 year old with fever dangerous? Otherwise healthy child. Beat is regular just rapid. Thank you
Not unexpected: The range of the awake heart rate of a 4yo is 60-140. The addition of fever generally increases the rate by 10 beats/degree/min. The respiratory rate also increases by ~5 breaths/min/degree. A kids heart is much more tolerant of rapid rates than adult & with some illnesses we will see it in the 180+ range for a couple days. ...Read more
Normal HR ; RR: The normal range for heart rate is 100-160 for a 3 week old, although if baby really upset crying hard up to 180 would not be unusual. Respiratory rate ranges from low 20's to 60. # week old babies also still have a percentage of periodic breathing, a normal breathing pattern where they breath very rapidly and then slow way down and almost look like they are not breathing and then speed up again. ...Read more
What respiratory rate is acceptable for a 6y.O. Trachee at rest (seated)?Work of breathing always fairly high. Best usu 24 but not lately.
Depends on baseline: Everyone has a baseline rate, which his rate is on a day to day basis, especially when not ill. A 6 year old can be between about 15 and 30. (if the child is always healthy, any baseline rate in that range should be ok). However, if a child's baseline increases a lot, over a few days to months, one needs to ask why, such as infection, heart disese, tummy distention, low o2, high co2, etc... ...Read more

My daughter age 5 month having rapid heart rate about 240 per minute.is this dangerous? mybabys growth and other activity are normal.
Yes, it can be: She may have a condition called SVT. The infant can tolerate this for a short period of time, and then becomes very ill very quickly. You have a short time to get her heart regulated before it could start to fail, sometimes rapidly. Sign off and go to ER now. If you live in a city with a Children's Hospital, go there. If not, nearest ER will be fine - they will transfer her if needed. ...Read more

48 yrs old. Max heart rate on slow (65 mins) 5 mile run =230. Average HR =182. Training watch says 0% of run is at appropriate rate for my age. OK?
How do you feel?: There is no rule that says it can't go that fast, but it's more than expected. It's possible your monitor is "double counting" the beats, which is not uncommon because it misinterprets the electrical impulse of your heart. Do you have a fast heart rate at rest? Do you have palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, passing out or chest pain? If you have those, see your doc to check rhythm. ...Read more
What are upper normal limits of respiration rate for a women who weighs 150 pounds, 5' 7" is tall and is 83 years old?
Respiration rate: the average respiration rate for adults is 12-16 breaths per minute. more important is if you are nasal breathing so that the volume of air in and out is controlled. if you are exhaling through the mouth you may be losing too much CO2(which causes smooth muscle to relax). without enough CO2 , oxygen doesn't release from the hemoglobin molecules. seek out correct breathing instruction ...Read more
2 yr o asthmatic with bronchitis and RSV on inhaled albuterol every 3 hrs. Pulse ox 180/92 and temp 103. Is her heart rate too high even for albut?
Safety of Albuterol: With the numbers you give, I am assuming that the child is being treated in the hospital. If so, with good nursing monitoring, continued use of albuterol should be safe. The heart rate goes up with fever as well as the medication. Children generally tolerate high rates. If the child is not in the hospital, struggling with the numbers you give, he/she certainly should be checked again. ...Read more
Depends: Will depend on the heart rate. A child's resting heart rate is faster than that of an adult. During sleep, heart rates do change. Rem sleep (rapid eye movement) can increase heart rates to over 20% of resting rates. An abnormally fast heart rate in a child is typically over 220/min. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it safe to run at slow pace, although heart rate goes into 90% range (190+) after 10 min. Resting heart rate, BP and stress test are all normal. ?
Running pace: Yes. Remember that you calculate the desired heart rate for exercise by the formula: 70% x (220 - yourage) as your target heart rate. Your maximal heart rate is just 220 minus yourage. As long as you don't exceed your maximal heart rate, you should be ok. With continued exercise, your pulse will trend lower during exercise. ...Read more
12-18 during health: According to Dr. Williams in a professional review of geriatrics pulmonary assessment from 2009, "Normal respiratory rates for older patients are 12 to 18 breaths per minute for those living independently and 16 to 25 breaths per minute for those in long term-care." There can be considerable variation depending on activity. If there is a concern about pulmonary status, best to see pulmonologist! ...Read more
If a normal respiratory rate is 12-20 breathes per minute for an adult, and mine is about 6-9. Is this healthy? I do not have any medical conditions.
Is a respiratory rate of 11-12 normal when a 7 yo is sleeping? Getting over influenza. No difficulty breathing. Rhythm normal.
Is it normal to have SOB chest tightness and what feels like occasional weak or irregular respiratory rate 3 weeks after smoking cessation?
Yes: following smoking cessation, the tiny hair cells that line the respiratory tract start working again, and start moving up all the accumulated junk and mucus that has accumulated there. This can result in increased productive cough, pain with coughing and even shortness of breath. But it is a good sign, and will stop after several week to months. Congrats on stopping, and stay quit! ...Read more
