The Effects Of Exercise On Breathing Rate
I'm athletic/exercise daily. Resting HR is usually 48-52 bpm. Resting breathing rate is pretty low (10 breaths/minute), but I feel fine. Is that ok?
Exercise Or Physical Activity (Definition)
Exercise is a physical activity that is completed to maintain or improve health. Benefits of exercise include weight maintenance, improving mood, increasing energy, preventing or controlling chronic diseases, promoting better sleeping, and improving sex life and libido. ...Read more
Im working in a hot body shop is it normal for breathing rate to increase in the heat it im taking aboit 21-23 breaths a min im scared?
What's normal?: No, unless you are a dog who is cooled by panting - it is not. You need to try intentional breath patterns to gain some control over it. Breath in thru nose a full amount slowly. Hold it for a count of 6-8. Then blow it out through pursed lips like blowing out a candle for a long steady count of 8-10 till lungs are totally empty. Repeat 5 times. D this pattern every hour at least. Best! ...Read more
Depends on conditioning and baseline.
Goes up with exercize and returns to low normal with resting for ten minutes after completion!
14- 20 resting common. ...Read more
Could you tell me what are good exercise routines that can test the heart rate and breathing rate?
Aerobic exercise: Using maximal heart rate and target heart rate zones. Improve endurance and cardiac capacity by reaching 90% of mhr and staying for 2mins then resting and staying at 70% for4 mins. Increase sprinting time slowly. Stay exercising without stoping while resting after sprinting. ...Read more
My 1yr old twins were diagnosed with upper resp virus? Is there anything i can give them to stop coughing, brething hard, o sleep?
Try this: Try deep breathing exercises if you are looking to acutely slow it down. Deep breathing. Inhale through the nose. Fill lungs (but not to point of discomfort). Hold for a five count. Slowly exhale through an open mouth. Repeat x 12. Moving your arms in a large circular motion can increase the size of the breath. ...Read more
Automatic: Your body automatically controls the rate of breathing, which varies according to activity level. Best to let it be. ...Read more
Tidal volume...: Males, on average, tend to have slower breathing rates due to larger lung size (it takes longer to complete the respiratory cycle of inhale/exhale). Also, male heart rates are slower on average. Given these facts, it seems counterintuitive, but women have lower metabolic rates than men. ...Read more
An individual with a slower breathing rate is probably better trained
if you have a slower baseline breathing rate you will have more room to increase it when exercise becomes more rigorous(similar but not the same as heart rate ). ...Read more
Bradypnea: Brady - slow, pnea - breathing.Get a more detailed answer ›
Not necessarily: Could be just normal for you, especially if you are not having any symptoms. If there is a problem, it's more likely a neurologic issue as opposed to internal damage. ...Read more
Depends on Altitude: Your breathing rate depending on how much higher you go will initially be higher. As one acclimates and gets used to the new higher altitude the rate should decrease as your body adjusts. ...Read more
Increases: During an asthma flare or attack, frequently the respiratory rate increases (like panting). However, some people having asthma can have normal respiratory rate. When a person has controlled asthma or not experiencing asthma symptoms, the respiratory rate should be normal. Having asthma should not change the baseline respiratory rate. ...Read more
RR: Normal is 8-16. It isn't abnormal to be 6-20. Depends on many things. These are at rest normals. ...Read more
Cardiac drift: With prolonged exercise, breathing rate increases to meet the oxygen demands of working muscle. Heart rate increases, but it does not plateau. A steady increase in heart rate is seen with prolonged exercise due to 'cardiac drift'. The heart rate increases in order to maintain your cardiac output in the face of decreased 'preload' due to dehydration and blood diverting to skin for heat loss. ...Read more
Hi my son isn't very web so just wanted to no what is the breathing rate ment to b in a 3year old as it seems to fast thank u?
If you're counting: Correctly, a persistent respiratory rate in the 40's or above, not just when fussing, would be of concern. ...Read more
Standing erect: When you lie or sit, your body doesn't have to fight gravity to get blood to your head. When you stand up, it does, and heart rate rises and leg blood vessels tighten to maintain blood flow to your brain. Breathing is less affected. If you have heart failure, breathing and heart rate may rise upon lying down since more blood returns to the heart than it can handle and it backs up into the lungs. ...Read more
NO such list: Your question is so ambiguous and out of context that it is impossible. There are dozens of variables and any breathing rate will vary from day to day within a range of normal. If you are not able to speak in a full sentence then you are working too hard at whatever activity you are doing. ...Read more

Does high BP cause hypoventillation (i.E: why does stimuation of the arterial baroreceptors cause a decreased breathing rate)?
What to do if I have high bp) cause hypoventillation (i.e: why does stimuation of the arterial baroreceptors cause a decreased breathing rate)?
Wrong: You have a different physiology text than mine! Hypoventilation with fall in pO2, rise in pCO2, and fall in pH - all stimulate arterial chemoreceptors in the carotid and aortic bodies to increase breathing rate. There is no effect on baroreceptors which respond to changes in BP. ...Read more
