In brief: Yes
The medical definition of bradypnea (or bradypnoea) is abnormally slow breathing rate (respirations per minute) and as in heart rate the number will depend on the patient's age.

In brief: Short and Sweet: Yes
Bradypnea is a proper medical term for slow breathing.
It is a clinical sign of central respiratory depression due to drug intoxication and brain failure from other causes, but a slow respiratory rate is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, bradypnea at rest is common in healthy folks and trained athletes. Dr. Mike.
