Symptom #2: Tachypnea

Tachypnea is a term describing rapid breathing. In normal causes in adults, the respiratory rate can range between 12 to 20 breaths per minute. Tachypnea can, therefore, be defined as more than 20 breaths per minute. Normal breathing rates are higher among children, which declines steadily until 18 years old.

Some causes of tachypnea include sepsis, metabolic acidosis, diabetic ketoacidosis, pneumonia, carbon monoxide poisoning, pleural effusion, laryngospasm, and congestive heart failure. It is a common associated symptom for individuals with pulmonary embolism or a clot in the lung.
