Are you curious to know how many breaths your lungs have clocked since your birth? Also the rate at which you breathe (respiratory rate)? Since breathing is an automatic process, most of the time we are not conscious of it. Breathing is a combination of inhalation and exhalation process by which our body cells get required oxygen and carbon dioxide is removed.
