Hi. The only ways this can be connected to the respiratory system are as follows --
1. He had a lung contusion when he fell off the motorcycle and this can be associated with increased respiratory rate.
2. He has had a fracture of a long bone like femur with fat embolism.
Hope I have answered your query.Thank you.
